    If you are in Los Angeles at the end of the month, you could do worse than check this out. Asian cinema expert Professor David Desser is giving a lecture and panel discussion titled “Re-Imagining Kurosawa” at the Japan House in Los Angeles on November 26. Among a myriad of other things, he’s the author of The Samurai Films of Akira Kurosawa.

    About the event:

    Academy Award winning Filmmaker, Film Producer and Screenwriter Akira Kurosawa (March 23, 1910 – Sept 6, 1998) was one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, who inspired many of the world’s greatest filmmakers such as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola. Kurosawa’s ground-breaking masterpieces inspired such classic movies as Star Wars, The Magnificent Seven, and A Fistful of Dollars, to name just a few.

    In this lecture, Dr. David Desser will help you “Re-Imagine Akira Kurosawa” as he provides you unique insight into Kurosawa and his classic film, High and Low (1963), which was adapted from Ed McBain’s detective novel King’s Ransom.

    Panel discussion/Q&A session follows the lecture (special guest panelists: TBA).
