Posted on 1/9/2013 10:34:00 AM

RADNOR, Pa. (Jan. 9, 2013) – On Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, Paul Wright, Ph.D., associate professor of English at Cabrini College and an expert on media studies, will discuss Akira Kurosawa’s 1950 masterpiece film “Rashomon” prior to a screening of the film at the Barnes Foundation (2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia). 

A discussion also will follow the screening, which begins at 5:30 p.m. 

A member of the Bryn Mawr Film Institute Advisory Council, Wright teaches courses on famed film directors such as Martin Scorcese, the Coen Brothers, Clint Eastwood, and the aforementioned Kurosawa. 

Set in feudal Japan, “Rashomon” is a tense exploration of the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, centering on four accounts of a bandit’s attack on a married couple. 

Tickets are $20 ($15 for Barnes Foundation members). Note: tickets do not grant admission to the museum, which is open until 10 p.m. on Fridays.
