Arguably the most celebrated Japanese filmmaker of all time, Akira Kurosawa had a career that spanned from the Second World War to the early nineties.
His best-known films remain his samurai epics, but his intimate dramas about people on the margins of society are just as searing.
Kurosawa gained international fame far beyond Japan, expanding his dark brand of humanism into new stylistic territory with visionary films that are epic reflections on modern man and nature.
All movies are in Japanese with English subtitles.
