Eastern Promises: THRONE OF BLOOD on 35mm!

Join us for a screening of Akira Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood!
A grim and haunting retelling of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, starring the legendary Toshiro Mifune.
“The aesthetics and philosophy of Throne of Blood take us well beyond Shakespeare, and that’s why this is a great film. Its accomplishments are not beholden to another medium or artist. Kurosawa gives us his own vision, expressed with ruthless, chilling power, and it’s the totality of that vision, its sweep and its uncompromising nature, that moves and terrifies us—and that we are so seldom privileged to see in cinema.” – Stephen Prince (On Film, 2014)
