NOLA Japanese Cinema Series continues with free screening of Kurosawa's Ran

Posted By on Mon, Nov 4, 2013 at 3:22 PM

Charitable Film Network and Press Street continue their Nola Japanese Cinema Series tonight, Monday, Nov. 4, with a free screening of Akira Kurosawa's late-career masterpiece Ran at 7:00 p.m. at Cafe Istanbul inside the New Orleans Healing Center. Loosely based on both Shakespeare's King Lear and the life of 16th century feudal ruler Mori Motonari, Ran is widely lauded for its creative use of color (most of the Kurosawa canon was shot in black and white) and was the most lavish Japanese film ever made upon its release in 1985. It was nominated for four Oscars and has gradually earned a place alongside Kurosawa classics like Rashomon and Seven Samurai. More info here.
