Kabuki on Film: The 47 Ronin | Japantown
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC) | 1840 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA
Join us as we study on film the Kabuki dramas “The Yamazaki Highway” and “Kampei’s Death,” two famous acts from “The 47 Ronin,” one of the most popular samurai revenge tales of all time. No need to have seen prior acts; these two form a self-contained story.
Having failed in his duty to his lord, Kampei has fled to his wife’s home in the countryside. But there can he escape the vicissitudes of fate, or will his life become even more tragic still?
In Japanese with English subtitles. The classes are part of The 47 Ronin Project, a year-long exploration of the original Kabuki theatre version of the popular samurai revenge tale on film.
Sponsored by JETAANC Kabuki Club, SMJACC Kabuki Club, and JCCCNC.
