Akira Kurosawa Information

Biography

This biography is based on the one that I wrote for Wikipedia back in the summer of 2010. Since then, the Wikipedia article has been revised by other people, while I have updated the text for Akira Kurosawa info. The biography is a synthesis of the various books, documentaries and other information available about Kurosawa with sources for direct quotes indicated in the text.
