    In this clip from the recent documentary A Testimony as an Image, which reunites members of the Rashomon crew nearly sixty years after Akira Kurosawa’s epochal film was made, lighting and electrical technician Genkon Nakaoka describes the four hours of shooting that went into creating one seemingly minor moment in the film; the interview segment is followed by the scene in question. The entire documentary, which offers invaluable insight into Kurosawa’s filmmaking process, is included in our brand-new edition of Rashomon.

    Rashomon is one of my favorite Kurosawa films.
