Akira Kurosawa Season at the BFI Southbank Jan - Feb 2023

Written by Richard Durrance on 02 Dec 2022



Having been blessed with the BFI's Japan season of films towards the end of 2021, then their anime season; then the complete directorial work of Kinuyo Tanaka; now the BFI and BFI Southbank in the new year (January and February) bring us a retrospective of the works of Akira Kurosawa.

Starting off with his films focussing on Society, Social Status and Honour in January, it's a great opportunity to see some of his less well-known works such as One Wonderful Sunday, as well as his most famous films.

To cap it all off there's an extended run of his film that opened the eyes of the West to Japanese cinema: Rashomon.

Booking opens soon, so check out what January has to offer here, while safe in the knowledge that your favourites not showing in January will be arriving in February.

About Richard Durrance

Long-time anime dilettante and general lover of cinema. Obsessive re-watcher of 'stuff'. Has issues with dubs. Will go off on tangents about other things that no one else cares about but is sadly passionate about. (Also, parentheses come as standard.) Looks curiously like Jo Shishido, hamster cheeks and all.
