Foreign Film Series--Hidden Blade
October 23, 2014 from 7:00 p.m.–11:30 p.m.
Set in mid-19th century Japan, The Hidden Blade explores samurai ethics, encroaching Western ideology, ruthless politics, and forbidden love. Munezo Katagiri (Masatoshi Nagase), a samurai, finds himself torn between the love he feels for a lowly farm girl and his fidelity to a dying tradition. Unable to marry the girl because of their differing castes, Munezo's conflict over his position comes to a head when he is ordered to kill one of his closest friends who has been branded a traitor.
