This video released by the British Film Institute comprises three silent films by Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu with original soundtrack compositions by University of Sussex composer Ed Hughes. The compositions respond to Ozu's films by matching their mood and their underlying cyclical patterns in order to make Ozu's distinctive visual style more accessible to contemporary western audiences. The video release comprises two DVDs with accompanying booklet including essays and commentaries by internationally recognised film scholars, and by the composer Ed Hughes.
