Japanese Film Series - Rashomon
The Institute’s celebration of Japanese culture continues with this special Japanese Film Series on select Thursdays during the exhibition. A variety of film titles have been chosen to represent different genres and highlight some of the finest international films.
Directed by Akira Kurosawa, 1951, Japan, Not Rated, 83 min., Subtitled
Rashomon is a riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, and is considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people give different accounts of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema—and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune—to the Western world.
