The Japan Foundation, Bangkok and Film Archive (Public Organization) proudly presents a special screening of Seven Samurai (1954) by the legendary Japanese film director Akira Kurosawa on Saturday 28th December 2019, 12:00 at Scala Theater.


Akira Kurosawa is well acclaimed for his unique directorial style. Many of his films throughout 1940-1990s such as Seven Samurai, Rashomon, Throne of Blood and etc. are considered as classics and influenced the next generation of film industry tremendously. Seven Samurai was nominated in various film festivals including Academy awards, British Academy Film Awards and had won Silver Lion award from Venice Film Festival in 1954.


Seven Samurai is a story about a samurai trying to protect a village from bandits. Six other samurais join to help him teach the villagers how to defend themselves and in return, the villagers provide the samurai with food. A giant battle occurs when 40 bandits attack the village.


On 28th December 2019 will be the 124 years’ anniversary of the world’s first commercial film screening. We would like to bring back Seven Samurai on to the big screen of Scala Theater as a celebration for this special occasion.
