ACMI: Essential Kurosawa: Selected by David Stratton

26 May 2017 7:00 PM | Office Administrator (Administrator)

ACMI IN ASSOCIATION WITH SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL AND THE NATIONAL FILM AND SOUND ARCHIVE PRESENT TEN OF THE FINEST FILMS BY KUROSAWA 

The best of Kurosawa’s films possess a grandeur combined with a common touch. No-one filmed action scenes like he did – his use of multiple camera, long lenses and intricate editing combined to make these sequences unforgettable. And who else ever filmed rain in the same way Kurosawa did? The elements play a key role in his work, alongside his extraordinary actors and the sheer brilliance of his eye behind the camera.

Welcome to this exciting retrospective of ten of this great director’s finest films.
