Description

1950s: Seven Samurai (207 min., 1954)
One of the most thrilling movie epics of all time, Seven Samurai (Shichinin no samurai) tells the story of a 16th century village whose desperate inhabitants hire the eponymous warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-hour ride from Akira Kurosawa-featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura-seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action, into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope. This film will be screened in Japanese with English subtitles.
