Japanese public broadcaster NHK will air a recently rediscovered television drama directed by OZU Yasujiro 小津安二郎.
Ozu co-wrote the one-off drama special 青春放課後 (literally: “After the End of Youth”) in 1963 with novelist SATOMI Ton 里見惇, after his final film An Autumn Afternoon 秋刀魚の味 (1962) and before his death in December that year. Set in Kyoto and Tokyo, the 88-minute drama is about a young woman and her family before her wedding. It was directed by HATANAKA Yosho 畑中庸生.
The drama premiered on NHK in Mar 1963 and reran in 1964. The network discovered a damaged copy and digitally remastered it. It will air the 88-minute drama on its BS Premium network on 14 Oct — its first broadcast in nearly 50 years.
