27-04-2019 12:00:00 27-04-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York The Tragedy of Bushido | 5:00 pm Written and directed by newcomer Eitaro Morikawa for Shochiku's Kyoto studio, The Tragedy of Bushido is the first jidaigeki period drama produced by the New Wave. After a clan lord dies, a young samurai in 17th century Japan is forced to follow him in death through ritual suicide in accordance with an archaic bushido custom. Drawing a connection between the oppressive values of absolute fealty within the samurai moral code and the bureaucratic political systems of postwar Japan that continued to place priority on obedience and obligation over individual freedoms, Morikawa gave birth to a new kind of post-Anpo jidaigeki. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359081 Japan Society Japan Society
