PAAFF Film Club – Dersu Uzala
April 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
For April’s Film Club we will be looking at one of Akira Kurosawa’s lesser known films, Dersu Uzala.
This Soviet-Japanese co-production, and Kurosawa’s only non-Japanese-language film, tells a moving story about cultural exchange, friendship, and loss, all taking place within the visually stunning wilderness of the Russian Far East. It is a film all about the unexpected but inevitable intersections of geography, untamed nature, and humanity.
Our April PAAFF Film Club meeting is scheduled for April 20 at 6PM ET. Dersu Uzala is available to stream via Criterion Channel subscription, and to rent on Amazon.
Make sure you join the PAAFF Film Club Discord server if you’re interested in continuing the conversation outside of our monthly meetings!
