Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese will toast what would have been late moviemaker Akira Kurosawa's 99th birthday at a gala in his honour on Monday.

The two directors have recorded emotional video messages which will be shown at the Cherry Blossom Gala in Los Angeles.

The event will serve as the official launch of the Akira Kurosawa Film School at California's Anaheim University and various members of Kurosawa's family are expected to be at the tribute.

The revered Japanese filmmaker's movies, like Red Beard and Seven Samurai, inspired moviemakers like Spielberg, Scorsese and George Lucas - and films like Star Wars, The Magnificent Seven and A Fistful of Dollars.

The director died in 1998. »
