Japanese Samurai Movie for Charity, May 28
Sedona, AZ (May 20, 2011) – Sedona Heart Japan Campaign’s Japan Movie Night presents the acclaimed “Love and Honor” (Bushi no Ichibun, literally Warrior’s Honor), the story of a samurai facing life with a handicap, May 28, Saturday, 6:30 p.m., Sedona Mago Healing Center, 340 Jordan Road, Uptown Sedona.
Shinnojo, a low-level samurai, lives with his pretty, dutiful and loyal wife, Kayo. He has realized that his position as a food taster for a feudal lord is boring and pointless. He considers opening a kendo school for boys from all castles, where he can teach how to use a sword.
Before the samurai can act on his dream, he becomes ill after tasting some tainted raw fish. After three days of fever, he awakes to find that he is blind. Fighting despair, he now must ponder what to do with his life.
The suggested donation is $10. All donations go to Peace Boat Japan, a nonprofit organization that is providing on-the-ground relief for East Japan Earthquake survivors.
