Friday, June 18, 2010 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

Explore Seven Samurai, Kurosawa’s most famous, enduring and internationally acclaimed film in a collaborative workshop with Mamoun Hassan, former Head of BFI Production.

Hassan, who will lead a scene-by-scene exploration of what we see and hear and facilitate discussion about the wider significance of what occurs on screen, was responsible for devising and producing the acclaimed C4 series Movie Masterclass and his particular approach to the work of the director has been widely praised by audiences for its ability to alter the way in which they experience cinema. This participatory seminar will require prior viewing of Seven Samurai and tickets are available as stand-alone or in conjunction with any screening of the film, playing as part of the season devoted to Kurosawa and His Influence.
