Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams

Saturday, Apr 8, 2017

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Akira Kurosawa. 1990, 120 mins. 35mm. With Akira Terao, Matsuko Baisho, Chishu Ryu, Martin Scorsese. In English and Japanese with English subtitles. Stepping in front of the camera for a brief but memorable performance, Martin Scorsese plays the French painter Vincent Van Gogh. This free-form work by the great Japanese director Akira Kurosawa dramatizes eight of the filmmaker’s dreams and is filled with lyrical, occasionally surreal imagery.
