About the Film:
Part of Akira Kurosawa Retrospective
Directed by Akira Kurosawa. Japan. 1945. Japanese with English subtitles. 83 min.
Kurosawa’s first film, Sanshiro Sugata, was such a success that the studio leaned on the director to make a sequel. Released just moths before Japan surrendered to the U.S., the film features a two-part narrative in which Sanshiro first fights a pair of Americans and then finds himself the target of a revenge mission undertaken by the brothers of the original film’s villain.
Though it is a product of a difficult time in Japan’s history, viewed today it is a hugely entertaining adventure, reuniting most of the major players from the original.
This film screens in conjunction with Sanshiro Sugata.
