  • Issues in Representation: The Cinematic City, 9 February, 2011, Department of Film and Television Studies, University of Warwick (repeated on 16 February, 2012)

This lecture dealt with the city space represented in Ozu Yasujiro's films. It surveys the history of Tokyo, which is the main spatial background in most of Ozu's films, emphasising its historical multilayeredness and geographical divisions. Ozu's salaryman films and The Only Son (1936) are examined in order to confirm this complexity in urban space.
