For more than half a century, renowned author, critic, filmmaker and raconteur Donald Richie served as Japan's unofficial cultural ambassador to the world. Acknowledged as the West's foremost authority on Japanese cinema, and its leading interpreter of Japan's journey from postwar turmoil to postmodern triumph, Richie devoted his entire career to illuminating his adopted homeland. With the creative participation of the subject himself, and insights from a Who's Who roster of friends and admirers, Outside In will celebrate Richie's extraordinary achievements while also painting a powerful — and unforgettable — portrait of modern Japan.
