Throne Of Blood

With an introduction from Dr. Dolores P. Martinez

Noh Reimagined

Transposing the action to sixteenth century Japan, ‘Throne of Blood’ is Akira Kurosawa’s re-telling of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.


A truly remarkable film, Throne of Blood manages to combine beauty and terror to produce a mood of truly haunting power. Starring the irrepressible Toshiro Mifune as the doomed warlord Washizu and a wonderfully creepy turn by Isuzu Yamada as the Lady Macbeth-inspired Asaji, the film shows Kurosawa’s familiar mastery of atmosphere and action combined with the savagery of war.

Generally considered to be Kurosawa’s film with the greatest influence from Noh Theatre, the screening will be proceeded by a 15 minute introduction and discussion from Dr. Dolores P. Martinez – Emeritus Reader in Anthropology at with special reference to Japan at SOAS, University of London and a Research Affiliate at ISCA, University of Oxford.

This event will last 2 hours and 15 minutes including an introduction by Dr. Dolores P. Martinez. 

Parental Guidance for under 12’s advised.
