This is an original Japanese printed in 1955 for the first release of I Live in Fear directed by Akira Kurosawa.
This poster is exceptionally rare. Originally sent to a small number of cinemas across Japan. This poster was intended to be cut into three separate posters. We are extremely lucky that this poster was not cut, and that the three contrasting colors of each poster remain united as one to make this exceptional work of art.
I Live In Fear (生きものの記録, Ikimono no kiroku, also known as Record of a Living Being or What the Birds Knew) is a 1955 Japanese drama film directed by Akira Kurosawa, produced by Sōjirō Motoki, and written by Kurosawa with Shinobu Hashimoto, Fumio Hayasaka, and Hideo Oguni. The film stars Toshiro Mifune as an elderly factory owner so terrified of the prospect of a nuclear attack that he becomes determined to move his entire extended family to what he imagines is the safety of a farm in Brazil.
