What better way to kick off a series inspired by the 400th anniversary of Anglo-Japanese relations than Akira Kurosawa’s magnificent adaptation of Shakespeare’s King Lear. Transposed to feudal-era Japan, Lear is an elderly warlord whose kingdom faces ruin as his sons battle each other to succeed their father.

Featuring some of the most striking images captured on film, Ran is an absolute must on the big screen.

“A landmark of world cinema, this is a rousing, staggering epic and a haunting drama of timeless significance.”

This film is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.

Time: 19:00

Price: £6.60, concessions £4.50.
