On March 23rd it will be a full hundred years since the birth of Akira Kurosawa. To celebrate the occasion, Criterion has dedicated the whole of March an Akira Kurosawa Month. A message on their front page reads:
March is Akira Kurosawa month at Criterion. On the twenty-third, the great Japanese filmmaker would have been one hundred years old. For this centennial celebration, we will be posting trivia questions and topics for discussion on Facebook and Twitter all month, and giving away a different Kurosawa poster, DVD, or Blu-ray disc every weekday. Be sure to become a fan on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to get in on all the action!
If you decide to take part in the competition, good luck and let us know if you win anything!
