“Dersu Uzala” 70mm Film Screening

National Film Center

This event has ended.

The Film Center holds a special screening each year to mark the UNESCO approved World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. For the 10th edition this year, they will present a screening of Akira Kurosawa’s “Dersu Uzala” on 70mm film, which will be the first time it has screened since the museum opening in 1970. Though in recent years works such as “Hateful Eight” (2015, Quentin Tarantino) and “Dunkirk” (2017, Christopher Nolan) has been shown in various locations around North America and Europe as 70mm projections, no such screenings were held in Japan. Though they were popular here in the 1950s, movie theaters in Japan no longer screen 70mm film. This is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
