Event Details


Come on by for our inaugural film club meeting, where we will screen Kurosowa’s 1952 classic, Ikiru (subtitled in English). The Encorepreneur Cafe staff will discuss the cultural context of the film beforehand and give club members some things to look out for while watching the movie.

Ikiru follows the story of Mr. Watanabe, an aging Tokyo bureaucrat, as he is diagnosed with cancer and realizes how little he has experienced of life. What follows is Watanabe’s grand awakening and his quest to find purpose in the little time he has left.
