Akira Kurosawa’s 1952 classic Ikiru comes to CCA! Upon getting the news of a terminal illness, a lonely bureaucrat (long-time Kurosawa collaborator Takashi Shimura) goes on a quest to find meaning in the months of his life. Loosely based on Leo Tolstoy’s 1886 novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich and recently remade as the Oscar-nominated Living staring Billy Nighy, Ikiru is considered by film scholars, academics and filmmakers as one of the greatest films ever made.

Ikiru opens at CCA on Mar 24. Check out what else is now playing and what’s coming soon.
