Akira Kurosawa Film Festival
The Moment of Collapse
Create a film festival for a chosen movie director. Extract a theme that ties together all of the director’s selected films and creates a cohesive visual system through various materials.
Showcase Japanese film director, Akira Kurosawa’s most idiosyncratic movies, including Ikiru (1952), Seven Samurai (1954), Throne of Blood (1957), The Bad Sleep Well (1960), and Yojimbo (1961). The visual execution is based on the director’s quirky and personal take on life and his constant theme: evil overwhelms the good in human nature, leading to defeat and hopelessness.
