Kurosawa Series: Ran

  • Theatre of Yugen 2840 Mariposa Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

"In Medieval Japan, an elderly warlord retires, handing over his empire to his three sons. However, he vastly underestimates how the new-found power will corrupt them and cause them to turn on each other...and him." 

Join Theatre of Yugen for film master Akira Kurosawa's 1985 retelling of King Lear. A look at Shakespeare in Japan will accompany this viewing, led by Artistic Director Nick Ishimaru.
