This event has ended.

Film director Akira Kurosawa’s work is appreciated all over the world. After Rashomon was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice International Film Festival in 1951, Kurosawa became a sensation in the international film world and a symbol of the high artistic quality of Japanese films. It has been 20 years since his passing in 1998, and still, his name resounds in the present day. As a special program to celebrate the opening of the National Film Archive of Japan, this exhibition showcases 84 posters of his films from 30 countries, together with other materials related to his connections abroad, selected from the collection of Toshifumi Makita, a researcher specializing in Akira Kurosawa. Kurosawa often said that “film is a kind of international plaza”, where people from every country- beyond Europe and North America- can come together.
