Join us for a 50th-anniversary screening of Akira Kurosawa’s Red Beard. Set in a public hospital serving the indigent in rural, feudal Japan, the 1965 film asks profound humanist and existential questions relating to social injustice. Is there a way out of the dispiriting cycle in which victims express their pain by hurting others? How can we break cycles of suffering and violence? Red Beard is the last black-and-white film by Kurosawa, and the last Kurosawa film starring legendary Japanese actor Toshiro Mifune

Akira Kurosawa (1910–1998) was a Japanese filmmaker who is regarded as one of the most important directors in the history of cinema. Drunken AngelRashomonHigh and Low and Seven Samurai are just a few of his many critically acclaimed films.
