Kenji Mizoguchi (1898–1956) is undoubtedly one of the great directors of Japanese cinema, whose oeuvre can be grasped in numerous ways, zig-zags through different genres and film studios, and makes use of a wide range of formal approaches and themes. Alongside the lyricism of his depictions of landscape and sophisticated choreographies of people and objects, it’s the portraits of women that form a leitmotiv running through Mizoguchi’s filmography. With this long overdue retrospective of 22 films by Mizoguchi, we are presenting a body of work of singular directorial, visual, and narrative richness as well as great emotional depth.
