(1950) Akira Kurosawa. Rashomon is a 1950 Japanese period drama film based on various characters presenting alternative, self-serving and contradictory versions of the same incident. The name of the film refers to the enormous city gate of Kyoto.[1] The term Rashomon effect refers to real-world situations where multiple eye-witness testimonies of an event contain conflicting information.

Rashomon marked the entrance of Japanese film onto the world stage. It won several awards, including the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1951, and an Academy Honorary Award at the 24th Academy Awards in 1952, and is now considered one of the masterpieces in film history.
