Tribute to Akira Kurosawa

Di 31 okt | 20:15 | GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

Shakespeare’s King Lear as a historical epic set in sixteenth-century Japan.

Tribute to Akira Kurosawa

Arguably the most celebrated Japanese filmmaker of all time, Akira Kurosawa had a career that spanned from the Second World War to the early nineties. His best-known films remain his samurai epics, but his intimate dramas about people on the margins of society are just as searing. Kurosawa gained international fame far beyond the Japan, expanding his dark brand of humanism into new stylistic territory with visionary films that are epic reflections on modern man and nature.

All films are in Japanese with English subtitles. 

Ran (1985)
With Ran, legendary director Akira Kurosawa reimagines Shakespeare’s King Lear as a singular historical epic set in sixteenth-century Japan. Majestic in scope, the film is Kurosawa’s late-life masterpiece, a profound examination of the folly of war and the crumbling of one family under the weight of betrayal, greed, and the insatiable thirst for power.

De filmprogrammering in De Nieuwe Regentes is mogelijk gemaakt met hulp van Fonds 1818.
