Japanese Theatre on Film: The 47 Ronin | JapantownJoin Kabuki on Film as they explore the dramatic concluding acts of “The 47 Ronin,” one of the most popular samurai revenge tales of all time. The Bunraku drama, “The Loyalty of Gihei,” and the Kabuki drama, “The Attack on Morono’s Mansion,” will be shown.

Is the merchant Gihei willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to support the 47 Ronin in their mission? Can the 47 themselves see the mission through to the bitter end?

There’s no need to have seen prior acts as these dramas are self-contained stories. The films are in Japanese with English subtitles.
