The New Orleans Museum of Art screens the Japanese classic Rashomon as part of its Friday night Where Y'Art series. Legendary director Akira Kurosawa's 1950 film introduced Japanese cinema to the world. A study of the nature of truth, perception and justice, the film recounts a murder and a rape from four different points of view. It's the first of a couple of Japanese film screenings coinciding with exhibits of Japanese painting and calligraphy. Tickets $10 general admission, $5 New Orleans Film Society members, free for museum members. — Will Coviello
