    Presented in partnership with Lightbox Film Center as part of the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival of Greater Philadelphia. Funding for this program was provided by The Japan Foundation, New York.

    Few actors have achieved the level of international recognition as Toshiro Mifune.Embodying a new form of Japanese masculinity in an era when the postwar relationship between US-Japan was still being actively negotiated, Mifune’s popular film roles elevated him to the status of cultural icon even among American audiences of the time. In this 7-film retrospective we will explore roles spanning the late 1940s immediate postwar era to the height of Mifune’s career in the late 1960s.
