Rashomon: Free Film Screening and Lecture

Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017 – Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017

07:00 PM – 09:00 PM


Join us for a free screening of Akira Kurosowa’s Rashômon — a film pivotal in helping ignite Western interest in Japanese cinema. Rashômon won both the Venice Film Festival’s grand prize and an Academy Award for best foreign-language film in 1951. In it, three main characters have each participated in the same terrible events, yet their narratives are wildly different. In discussing the film, we will consider the dynamics of madness, the nature of subjectivity in psychic reality, as well as possible lenses through which to recognize the strands of our common humanity.
