Koizumi: Kurosawa made films for future generations

  •   link


    It is often mentioned that Kurosawa, especially early in his career, made his films with a young Japanese audience in mind. It is therefore quite interesting to hear that Takashi Koizumi, who is currently attending a retrospective of Japanese cinema in Mumbai, has been quoted as saying that “Kurosawa made films not just for his generation, but he often told me to think about 3 or 4 generations in the future. And that is what a filmmaker should think about.”

    Considering that Koizumi worked with Kurosawa from Dersu Uzala onwards, I wonder if this is somehow related to the other major changes that took place in Kurosawa’s film making late in his career.
