I LIVE IN FEAR 35mm aka Ikimono no kiroku d. Akira Kurosawa, 1955 (03 APR 18:00) / Part of AKIRA KUROSAWA at The Prince Charles:

“An expressive, caustic, portrait of madness. Toshiro Mifune plays an aging industrialist driven to madness over fears of a nuclear attack. The most frightening aspect of Kurosawa’s film is not the threat of nuclear annihilation, but the proliferation of man’s inhumanity and greed, expressed by the family’s zeal to commit their father and keep their inheritances intact.” (The PCC)

RADIANT CIRCUS is delighted to announce the next screening supported by #ReviveTheDark, our audience-backed campaign for distinctive/DIY cinema! Sonic Cinema presents AUSTRIAN SYNAESTHETIC CINEMA at Cafe OTO (06 MAY 20:00).
