Project Kurosawa

akira_kurosawaThe famed Japanese director Akira Kurosawa was born March 23, 1910 and died September 6, 1998. Widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential film makers, Kurosawa directed 30 films over career that lasted six decades. Popularly known for his Samurai action adventure films, Kurosawa’s projects ranged widely from social drama to Shakespearean adaptations. As with many film directors, Kurosawa developed an affinity for working with particular actors, most notably, Toshiro Mifune, who was featured in 16 Kurosawa productions from 1948 to 1965, including Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood, and Yojimbo (Klaus Ming February 2015).
