Film Series: "Samurai and Cinema"
Bold, powerful, deadly—these words epitomize the samurai of the silver screen. Inspired by the historical military caste, samurai films tell human stories with rousing action and adventure. Exemplifying the archetype of a noble warrior, these characters continue to captivate audiences, whether they appear in stately period films or kitschy slashers.
207 minutes. NR. 35 mm. Japanese with English subtitles. Seven Samurai is unrated and appropriate for ages 13 and up.
The eclectic series of influential Japanese samurai will be shown films at four locations around Nashville. The Frist Center’s “Samurai and Cinema” partners are Belcourt Theatre, International Lens at Vanderbilt University, and Light + Sound Machine at Third Man Records.
This series is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Samurai: The Way of the Warrior, on view at the Frist Center from November 4, 2016, through January 16, 2017.
