Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters is a 1985 American/Japanese film co-written and directed by Paul Schrader. The film is based on the life and work of Japanese writer Yukio Mishima, interweaving episodes from his life with dramatizations of segments from his books The Temple of the Golden Pavilion, Kyoko's House, and Runaway Horses. It was executive produced by Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas.   The musical score for Mishima was composed by Philip Glass, with parts performed by the Kronos quartet. 

The Screening of Mishima will be followed by a Q&A with Philip Glass, moderated by Berthold Hoeckner from the Department of Music.
