A Special Event! Linda Ehrlich presents


Japan | 2018 | Hirokazu Kore-eda

SHOPLIFTERS film still

CWRU associate professor emerita Linda Ehrlich is one of the foremost authorities on contemporary Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda. She has interviewed him twice, provided the full-length commentary for Milestone Film and Video’s 25th-anniversary Blu-ray/DVD release of his 1995 debut film Maborosi, and is finishing a book on the director. Tonight Linda returns to Cleveland to introduce and answer questions after a screening of Kore-eda’s latest (and perhaps most acclaimed) feature, winner of the top prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival and a 2019 Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. Shoplifters is a touching, humanistic tale of a three-generation family of thieves—a crime movie full of charm, humor, suspense, and surprises. Subtitles. DCP. 121 min.

Special event pricing $11; members, CIA/CSU/CWRU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.

Screening co-sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, CWRU. Special thanks to Yuki Togawa.
