Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams
February 22 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Your CInema Series returns on Thursday, February 22 with a very special event honoring Japanese master filmmakers Ishiro Honda and Akira Kurosawa.
At 6:30 p.m., author Steve Ryfle will discuss the collaborations of directors Honda and Kurosawa.
At 7 p.m., we will screen a gorgeous restoration of one of Kurosawa’s final directorial efforts, DREAMS. Perhaps Kurosawa’s most personal and poetic work, the realization of this 1990 production included significant contributions from Honda, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and Martin Scorsese.
After the screening, Ryfle will sign copies of his new book ISHIRO HONDA: A LIFE IN FILM, FROM GODZILLA TO KUROSAWA.
FREE admission to The Cinema Series for Augusta University students, faculty, staff and the community is made possible by Student Life and Engagement and by the generous support of The Bee’s Knees and The Hive.
