THEY’RE BACK! SUNDAY CLASSICS: From Turkey to Japan
Presented with Silkscreen

In 2018, PF/PCA and Silkscreen will be exploring some of the most important films from the past 70 years in Asian cinema, including the classic directors that brought Asian films to American audiences for the first time, and more recent classics that show Asia’s central role in global cinema. A new film will be presented each month with an introduction by local experts and enthusiasts.

JANUARY: JAPAN — Akira Kurosawa’s THE HIDDEN FORTRESS
Sundays at 6pm, Jan 7, 14, 21, 28
Jan 7 introduction by Kelsey Cummings
PhD Student in Film Studies, University of Pittsburgh

A grand-scale adventure as only Akira Kurosawa could make one, The Hidden Fortress stars the inimitable Toshiro Mifune as a general charged with guarding his defeated clan’s princess (a fierce Misa Uehara) as the two smuggle royal treasure across hostile territory. The Hidden Fortress delivers Kurosawa’s trademark deft blend of wry humor, breathtaking action, and compassionate humanity. Akira Kurosawa, Japan 1958, 2h 39 min

The series is co-presented with Silk Screen, a Pittsburgh arts and culture organization that advocates for diversity and promotes Asian and Asian-American arts in Pittsburgh. Our events include monthly series of film and music, and a 10-day long Asian American Film Festival in September.
