Summary

Directed by Akira Kurosawa, 1957. This visually stunning adaptation of Macbeth sets Shakespeare’s story of ambition and duplicity in feudal Japan, fusing classical Western tragedy with Noh theatre. A war-hardened general receives a prophecy that he will become lord of Spiderweb Castle, and goaded by his ambitious wife, he works to fulfill his destiny—at any cost. Discussion moderator: D.J. Hopkins. Guest speaker: Daisuke Miyao, Professor of Literature at UC San Diego.
