Abstract: Akira Kurosawa is a Japanese film maker who is known as "the master of relativity." Two of his films, Rashomon and Akira Kurosawa's Dreams, are analyzed using concepts from Descriptive Psychology. Questions about what the relativity problem means to Kurosawa, how the problem plays out in his dreams and in his life, and why he is unable to solve it, are examined.
