This Saturday: AKIRA KUROSAWA

A giant of 20th-century cinema, Akira Kurosawa is acclaimed as one of the great cinema auteurs both for his technical mastery and the universal humanist themes that pervade his work: a compassion for individual suffering; a quest for justice through personal rebellion against corrupt social structures; and a concern for the existential crises of humanity in the face of death, social pressure, and the apparent meaningless of life’s struggles. Kurosawa’s work ultimately is a cinema of questioning rather than assertion. Bridging traditional Eastern cultural values with Western influences his pictures cut across genres, periods and settings.
