In the third event of the Crisis of Faith, Identity and Society series, the Department of English presents the film Seven Samurai. This 1954 landmark Japanese film directed by Akira Kurosawa focuses on veteran samurai Kambei, who answers a village’s request for protection from bandits. He gathers six other samurai to help him protect the village while teaching the villagers to defend themselves. As the final battle commences, the samurai and villagers come together to fight the invaders and save their home. Following the screening, Anna Oldfield, associate professor; Christian Smith, assistant professor; and Emma Howes, assistant professor, all of the CCU Department of English, will discuss the cultural context of the film. This film is not rated, and will be shown in Japanese with English subtitles.
