Bio
Born 1968 in Tokyo. Upon graduation from the law faculty of Keio University, worked at a TV station. Then went on to complete Master's degree in arts (film) at Waseda University, working part-time as an assistant to an advertising cameraman. Joined a documentary production company and was involved in directing and shooting short documentaries, and educational videos.

In 2001 directed the feature-length documentary near equal Moriyama Daido, which covered the work of the photographer MORIYAMA Daido. The film was given general release to receive a warm welcome. ambivalent future: Kurosawa Kiyoshi is FUJII's second full-length documentary.

Kurosawa first achieved international acclaim with his serial killer film Kyua (Cure) (1997). Also that year, Kurosawa experimented by filming two thrillers back-to-back, Serpent's Path and Eyes of the Spider, both of which shared the same premise (a father taking revenge for his child's murder) and lead actor (Sho Aikawa) but spun entirely different stories.

Kurosawa followed up Cure with a semi-sequel in 1999 with Charisma, which established his penchant for apocalyptic imagery and themes of identity and isolation. In 2001 Kurosawa directed Pulse, a film about ghosts invading the world of the living by way of the Internet. More recently Kurosawa has released Akarui Mirai (Bright Future) (2003), starring Tadanobu Asano, the first film of his shot with a 24p High-Definition video camera. Kurosawa followed this with another digital feature, Doppelganger, later the same year.
