A double bill featuring a Buster Keaton classic and a Japanese comedy, presented as part of a celebration of films from 1928.

First, there’s Steamboat Bill, Jr., a masterpiece of the silent era, in which Buster Keaton plays the captain of a dilapidated pedal steamer. It’s a film worth watching for the window stunt alone, perhaps Keaton’s most famous stunt.

It’s followed by Days of Youth, the oldest surviving film by Yasujiro Ozu, telling the tale of two university students who vie for the attention of the same girl.
