This discussion will focus on Akira Kurosawa’s 1957 film, Throne of Blood, as a key twentieth-century film and as an adaption of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Discussion will be centered around a number of key critical questions, such as: What does Kurosawa bring to Shakespeare? How can we understand this as part of a larger history of Shakespeare and adaptation? How has this film been influenced by and subsequently influenced global cinema and global Shakespeare? What are the local traditions that inform this film as a global adaptation? How can we understand and situate this film as scholars and critics?
Please note that this is not a film screening, and you will need to screen the film prior to attending this discussion. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about screening the film.
