World Cinema: Japan- “The Hidden Fortress” (1958)

Welcome to World Cinema! Each Sunday we will be showing a foreign language film (with English subtitles) up in the Great Hall. So if you are learning a new language, or are just curious about movies from other cultures, come and join us for an afternoon of popcorn and fun!

Free Admission!

This Sunday will be  Akira Kurosawa’s 1958 “Jidaigeki adventure film, “The Hidden Fortress” (隠し砦の三悪人  Kakushi Toride no San Akunin)!

This film tells the story of two peasants who agree to escort a man and a woman across enemy lines in return for gold without knowing that he is a general, and the woman is a princess. This film would go on to heavily influence the 1977 film: Star Wars.
