Akira Kurosawa

Japanese filmmaker, born in Tokyo in 1910 and died in the same city in 1998.

A descendant of Samurai, Akira Kurosawa embarked on the demanding “way of the cinema”, as others follow the “way of the sword”, tirelessly making over thirty films from 1941 to 1993 that shed light on his country’s long history. Named Sensei (master) on the set, Kurosawa wielded all the techniques of his art, from scripting to editing, and in return demanded total commitment from his collaborators, such as Toshirō Mifune, his favorite actor. First in Japanese studios, then Soviet (Dersou Ouzala, 1975), then Hollywood (Rêves, 1990), he shot “grand spectacle d’auteur”, sometimes epic, sometimes minimalist. Blending East and West, from Noh theater to Shakespeare (The Castle of the Spider, Ran), his work, so powerfully Japanese, becomes universal. It was Rashōmon (1950), which won awards at Venice and the Oscars, that ushered in international recognition for Japanese cinema.
