5/11/2013 at 2:00 PM to 5/11/2013 at 4:00 PM


Japan’s most famous director, the late Akira Kurosawa, captures his dreams on film in eight chromatically brilliant vignettes that include a wedding procession of foxes, a platoon of ghosts, post-apocalyptic human mutations and a meeting with Vincent Van Gogh. 

Kurosawa, who created this film when he was in his eighties, had no peer when it came to splashing the screen with sumptuous colors and awesome images.
