Marcos Wagner Da Cunha
University of São Paulo (PhD)
This essay is part of a doctoral dissertation presented to the Department of Philosophy, University of São Paulo, in 1993, named 'Genealogy of the Real' . Its core idea is a Nietzschean approach to a masterpiece among philosophical inspired movies, namely, Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon, which surely touches deep groundings of the concept of truth and reality.
Keywords Reality Concept  Nihilism  Friedrich Nietzsche  Akira Kurosawa  Death and Truth  Philosophical Cinema  Passion and Truth  Nothingness and Being  Heraclitus and Parmenides
