Global Film: Rashomon (Japan 1950)
Gibble Auditorium
Cost: free

A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, Rashomon is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people give different accounts of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema—and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune—to the Western world.

The Global Film Series of 2015-2016 focuses on Oscar Award-winning foreign films through the decades starting from the 1950s when the category was introduced.
