Shomin-Geki is a genre of Japanese cinema that focuses on the dramas of ordinary people and two prominent directors are considered masters: Mikio Naruse and Yasujiro Ozu. In contemporary Japanese cinema, it is impossible not to relate the genre to the body of work of director Hirokazu Kore-eda, who recently won the Palme d'Or at Cannes. These films portray the routine in the lives of ordinary people through small actions, which together carry a great emotional charge.
The Shomin-Geki Cinema show, the family according to Ozu, Naruse and Kore-eda will showcase the best films of this genre focusing on the classic directors as well as the contemporaries. In addition to including a short retrospective of director Hirokazu Kore-eda, new looks from directors Naomi Kawase and Miwa Nishikawa and the drama of Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Tokyo Sonata will be explored.
