Discussion Assignment

Review the blackboard materials provided about the film Akira  Kurosawa’s Dreams.  

The character and plot line of a short film is distinctly different from that of a feature. After seeing  Akira Kurosawa’s Dream’s,  discuss the structure of one of these short films and it’s relationship to the the other seven films in  Dreams. How do you think these structures relate to other Japanese art forms (namely literature or theatre), or compared to other film(s) by Kurosawa?

Contribute your thoughts in Blackboard.
