A giant of 20th-century cinema, Akira Kurosawa holds a unique place among the world's most distinguished filmmakers as the only non-Westerner. Yet, surprisingly little is known of Japan's greatest filmmaker outside of his native country, and only a few of his films are familiar to American audiences. Now, with the personal endorsement and participation of his children, Hisao and Kazuko, this film presents a definitive two-hour profile, exploring Kurosawa's work in its entirety. There are film excerpts, archival footage never before seen in the West, interviews with actors influenced by Kurosawa's work, and re-creations from his book "Something Like an Autobiography" examining the personal circumstances that produced one of the world's greatest cinema artists.
