The Aurora Film Society Virtual Film Club brings you “Throne of Blood” for our June 16th discussion.
A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation, Throne of Blood, directed by Akira Kurosawa, sets Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives a remarkable, animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife. Throne of Blood fuses classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience.
We invite you to join us via Zoom on June 16th at 7pm for analysis of “Throne Of Blood”. We have added a link in the pulldown menu under the Virtual Movie Club button to make it easier to participate in our discussions every month.
Check out the selected films for our theatre screenings too. Subscribers and their guests returned last month in decent numbers for our screening of “The Square”. Join us this month for “Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown” and bring a friend who loves movies.
