Ran

Posted in Kulturecast by - July 18, 2016

Chris continues Shakespeare Month with guests Mike White of the Projection Booth, film critic Oscar Moreno, and Quinn Fleming to talk Ran, Akira Kurosawa’s classic adaptation of King Lear. The film follows Hidetora Ichimonji, a Japanese lord, as he abdicates his throne to his three sons who then turn on him. He then descends into his own mental hell as his empire collapses all around him destroying everything he had ever worked for.
