Film Screening - Seven Samurai

When: Fri., June 23, 7 p.m. 2017

For “the finest Japanese film ever made” (Donald Richie), and a staple of nearly every top-ten film list ever made, Seven Samurai has a surprisingly familiar plot: a handful of strangers band together to protect helpless farmers from bandits. Then again, it’s because of Seven Samurai that this plot seems so familiar: one of the first non-Western films to reach a wide audience in the United States, it entered the Hollywood consciousness, where it inspired The Magnificent Seven, The Wild Bunch, and others. Often imitated, it’s still unmatched.

Price: $12
