Film Series | Samurai and Cinema: Yojimbo (1961)

The incomparable Toshiro Mifune stars in Akira Kurosawa’s visually stunning and darkly comic samurai story. To rid a terror-stricken village of corruption, wily master-less samurai Sanjuro turns a range war between two evil clans to his own advantage. This exhilarating genre-twister remains an influential and entertaining film. Directed by Akira Kurosawa.

Join us for an eclectic series of influential Japanese samurai films at four locations around Nashville. The Frist Center’s “Samurai and Cinema” partners are Belcourt Theatre, International Lens at Vanderbilt University, and Light + Sound Machine at Third Man Records.
