The Japan Foundation and Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts & Communication presents Kurosawa Retrospective – Experiencing The Genius of Akira Kurosawa.
This film festival consists of 25 classic Japanese Films of the legendary director – Akira Kurosawa.
Born on 23rd March 1910 in Shinagawa, Tokyo. Kurosawa studied art before entering into film. He served seven years as an assistant to director Kajiro Yamamoto. Within a few years, Kurosawa had achieved sufficient stature.
He began his own directorial career with Judo Saga (1943). Following the end of World War II, Kurosawa’s career gathered speed with a series of films that cut across all genres, from crime thrillers to period dramas. Kurosawa won number of awards for his films. In fact, a number of his films served as “inspirations” for successful Hollywood tales. The master storyteller died on 6th, September 1998 at the age of 88.
All the films are with English Subtitles and are being screened at two venues – The Japan Foundation, New Delhi and Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts & Communication, Adchini, New Delhi.
