活動写真:Japanese Samurai Films Screening in September

Calling all Angelinos! Considering the concentration of Japanese folk in the greater Los Angeles area, you'd be forgiven for thinking that there are constant Japanese film screenings. Wrong! Outside of the periodic event at LACMA it's slim pickings, my friend. So when any sort of Japanese film screening occurs, it's cause for celebration!

Here's one to mark down on your calendars:

On September 30, 2007 there will be an all day Samurai film screening in Little Tokyo. There are two Gosha Hideo titles (I wonder why they chose Kumokiri Nizaemon and not Kedamono no Ken or Kiba Okaminosuke), a wonderful Kobayashi Masaki entry and one by the 'Emperor', Kurosawa Akira.

Films include:

  • 11am Sambiki no Samurai   三匹の侍 (Three Outlaw Samurai)
  • 1pm Kumokiri Nizaemon 雲霧仁左衛門 (Bandits vs. Samurai Squadron) (Coincidentally, I just bought this discounted on Chinese DVD.)
  • 5pm Joi-uchi: Hairyo tsuma shimatsu 上意討ち (Samurai Rebellion)
  • 7:30pm Kumonosu-jo 蜘蛛巣城 (Throne of Blood)
