Akira Kurosawa's DREAMS

25th Anniversary!

(1990) dir Akira Kurosawa w/Akira Terao, Mitsuki Baisho, Mieko Harada, Mitsunori Isaki, Toshihiko Nakano, Chisu Ryu, Martin Scorsese [119 min; 35mm]
At the age of 80, the great Akira Kurosawa created this magical, mysterious, and moving film. Kurosawa adapted his own dreams into eight vignettes ranging from a young boy’s encounter with a wedding procession of foxes; to a mountaineer’s vision of a snow demon in a blizzard; to an officer assuring his men that they are indeed dead; to a journey through the paintings of Van Gogh to visit with the artist (played by Martin Scorsese).

“AKIRA KUROSAWA’S DREAMS serves as an important warning for future generations about the balance between man and nature, and how respect for this balance is the ultimate tool for survival.” Tessa Mediano takes us on a walk through AKIRA KUROSAWA’S DREAMS for Brattle Film Notes
