‘Throne Of Blood’ - First Folio! Film Screening

Directed by Akira Kurosawa, 1957. This visually stunning adaptation of Macbeth sets Shakespeare’s story of ambition and duplicity in feudal Japan, fusing classical Western tragedy with Noh theatre. A war-hardened general receives a prophecy that he will become lord of Spiderweb Castle, and goaded by his ambitious wife, he works to fulfill his destiny—at any cost.

Discussion moderator: D.J. Hopkins.
Guest speaker: Daisuke Miyao, Professor of Literature at UC San Diego.

Located in the Neil Morgan Auditorium.
