Celebrating its 60th anniversary only two years ago, Kurosawa Akira’s famous masterpiece Seven Samurai has been given a new life, more beautiful than ever in digital restoration. Under the supervision of the director’s long time assistant Nogami Teruyo, Toho Studios converted the film’s nearly 30,000 frames of original print into digital data and restored the image quality to the rich black and white that the director intended. Kurosawa’s cinematically powerful period drama about a group of seven warriors who save a little village from a group of bandits gave birth to a direct Hollywood remake and has inspired generations of filmmakers.★ With a 15-minute intermission.
