Opening screening introduced by series curator Chris D., with reception and book signing.

1959, 109 min., 16mm, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kazuo Mori. With Raizo Ichikawa, Shintaro Katsu, Chitose Maki.  Print courtesy of The Japan Foundation with permission from Kadokawa Pictures.

A unique take on the 47 Ronin story, this epic film propelled Shintaro Katsu to superstardom alongside then-reigning Raizo Ichikawa. Samurai Vendetta is the tragic tale of two swordsmen whose clans are embroiled in a blood feud, and who vie for the same woman. Betrayal, dishonor and death ensue.
