Catching Up with International Classics: Ugetsu

Catching Up with International Classics: Ugetsu
Film historian Donald Richie called the visually stunning UGETSU “one of the most perfect movies in the history of Japanese cinema.” It received an Academy Award nomination for Best Costume Design and Martin Scorsese named it one of his favorite films of all-time. We’ll learn and discuss why this Japanese masterpiece by Kenji Mizoguchi has inspired filmmakers worldwide.
This course will be taught by Jenny Lee whose previous MMU Friday afternoon classes include Stagecoach, The Earrings of Madame De, and the Maysles documentary Salesman. Jenny Lee is a 2024 Oregon Literary Arts Fellow in Drama.
Class size will be limited to 18.
