Kurosawa’s humanistic masterpiece will be followed by a presentation on the power of joy, from Judith T. Moskowitz, PhD, MPH Professor of Medical Social Sciences and Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, who was recently featured in The New York Times piece, “A Positive Outlook May Be Good for Your Health.”
