Film Studies Lecture Series

Ohio State's Program in Film Studies offers students and the campus community the opportunity to think historically and critically about the entire culture of global cinema. The program partners with the Wexner Center's media arts department on cosponsored lectures and selected screenings.

Each year, the faculty of Ohio State’s Film Studies Program selects an exemplary piece of film criticism from entries submitted by undergraduate students. In addition to a monetary award, the winner is invited to select and introduce a film at the Wexner Center. This year’s winner, Meghan Hoffman, selected Akira Kurosawa’s samurai classic Yojimbo (1961). 

The film stars Toshiro Mifune as a samurai who comes to a town that is torn between two competing gangsters. The film served as the inspiration for Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars, with Clint Eastwood in the role played by Mifune. (110 mins, 35mm)

Cosponsored with Ohio State’s Film Studies Program.
