Tribute to Akira Kurosawa

Di 17 okt | 20:15 | GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

A Macbeth adaptation in a fog-enshrouded feudal Japanese landscape.

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. 

Throne of Blood (1957)
A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation, Throne of Blood, directed by Akira Kurosawa, sets Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives a remarkable, animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife. Throne of Blood fuses classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience. 

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