The Details

Film Club @ The Music Hall Loft



It has a lyrical, almost fairytale quality that makes it feel like it could have been plucked out of ancient mythology. -Christopher Lloyd, Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Director, Akira Kurosawa; Composer, Toru Takemitsu
Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Film in 1972, Kurosawa’s first film in color. When the offer to score the film came along, composer Toru Takemitsu was already established as a well thought of member of the musical avant-garde, and had also written dozens of other film scores. Having been influenced by Debussy, Messiaen, Cage, as well as traditional Japanese music, Takemitsu’s music of Dodes’ka-den is perhaps most notable for its use of silence.
