See the film that George Lucas drew inspiration from for the original trilogy in the Star Wars saga, in the first of two relaxed screenings in our Kurosawa season. At a time of war, two opportunistic peasants attempting to reach home find themselves caught up in a struggle to save a rebel princess. Kurosawa’s adventure features slapstick comedy, swordfights and more than a little double-crossing.
Selected and hosted by campaigner and creative Leo Capella.
See the first part of our Akira Kurosawa season and other screenings of The Hidden Fortress.
Relaxed screenings are presented each month for those in the neurodiverse community and their assistants and carers. More detailed information can be found at bfi.org.uk/relaxed.
