"The Last Samurai - 20th Anniversary Special Event"

In 2003, an exhilarating journey into the ancient traditions of the samurai took our collective breath away. It invited us into a world lush with beauty, tradition, honor and deep respect for one another. Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe's characters learned a lot from each other, and in doing so gained a much greater understanding about their cultural differences as well.

The film went on to be nominated for four Academy Awards, including for Best Sound Mixing. The movie also became a top-10 all time box office hit in Japan when the film was released, in addition to it becoming the 6th highest-grossing film of 2003 worldwide.

Join us for a special in-person event to celebrate The Last Samurai's 20th Anniversary with the team that brought this story to life! We'll be joined by:

  • Mark P. Stoeckinger - Supervising Sound Editor
  • Andy Nelson - Re-Recording Mixer
  • Anna Behlmer - Re-Recording Mixer
  • Steven Rosenblum - Picture Editor

This is an MPSE members-only, in person event. +1s are permitted for this event.
