For over ten years, Pickford Film Center has been screening select choices from the vast and diverse landscape of Asian cinema. Co-presented by the Western Washington University Libraries, chosen films are often accompanied by introductions by educators and experts. From renowned icons Yasujirō Ozu and Edward Yang, to contemporary figures Hong Sang-soo and Jia Zhang-ke, Cinema East strives to provide a look into the oft-underseen and underrated cinematic world just overseas.
While the Pickford is closed, our series curator Jeff Purdue is here with curated recommendations for Cinema East films available on the Criterion Channel.
