Film Screening at The Archive - Shūbun (Scandal) by Akira Kurosawa
Just found out an Akira Kurosawa film will be screened tomorrow night, Thursday, 28th March at 8pm, in an outdoor venue at The Archive in Safa Park in Dubai. This doesn't happen often. Don't miss this.
About Shūbun (Scandal):
Ichiro Aoye, a young painter, encounters a famous singer, Miyako Saijo, while on holiday in the mountains. He gives her a ride and coincidentally stays at the same inn.
A tabloid magazine specializing in scandals blows this encounter up into a huge falsehood designed to humiliate Miyako, who has been uncooperative with the press.
Ichiro sues, but his lawyer, needing money for his sick daughter's treatment, accepts a bribe to throw the case. (via TCM)
