Film Classics in 35mm! Alexander Payne introduces


Japan | 1965 | Akira Kurosawa


Two-time Oscar winner Alexander Payne, director of The Holdovers, Nebraska, The Descendants, Sideways, Election (see 5/26 at 3:00), and others, will introduce a 35mm screening of this rarely-shown Kurosawa classic. Set in 19th-century Japan, the movie focuses on a gruff slum doctor (Toshiro Mifune) who tries to convince an arrogant young intern that caring for poor people is nobler than being a society physician. This humanistic epic, perhaps the only hospital drama with swordplay, was the 16th (and final) collaboration between Kurosawa and Mifune. 35mm scope print! Subtitles. 185 min. plus intro and intermission.

Special admission $15; members, CIA/CSU I.D. holders, age 25 & under $12; no passes.
