"The suburbs: signs of lifes, but no proofs..."

-Mason Cooley

THIS MAY- We're taking a cinematic journey to the spaces in between. Join us as we look beyond the freshly mowed lawns and white picket fences for a deeper study of life in the glossy hinterlands. The Paradise Presents: SOMEWHERE IN SUBURBIA- eight stories that prove the signs of life in static settings.

Our next film takes us to the outskirts of Tokyo, for a lighthearted directorial effort from modernist master Yashujiro Ozu. His 1959 comedy reveals the beauty of family life and offers a life affirming look at everyday existence. The Paradise Presents: GOOD MORNING.

Ozu's hilarious Technicolor reworking of his silent I Was Born, But . . . , Good Morning (Ohayô) is the story of two young boys in suburban Tokyo who take a vow of silence after their parents refuse to buy them a television set. Shot from the perspective of the petulant brothers, Good Morning is an enchantingly satirical portrait of family life that gives rise to gags about romance, gossip, and the consumerism of modern Japan.
