In honor of Mother's Day, Heritage House presents Yasujiro Ozu's "Late Spring" as part of its International Film Series on Monday, May 13 from 6-8 p.m.
"Widely regarded as one of the world's most influential directors, Ozu’s films traditionally deal with the themes of marriage and family, and especially the relationships between the generations.
"One of the most powerful of Yasujiro Ozu’s family portraits, "Late Spring" (aka: 'Banshun') tells the story of a widowed father who feels compelled to marry off his beloved only daughter.
"This poignant tale of love and loss in postwar Japan remains timeless," organizers said.
Heritage House Arts & Civic Center is located at 1428 Jenkins Road in Chattanooga. Admission is free.
