Bold, powerful, deadly—these words epitomize the samurai of the silver screen. Inspired by the historical military caste, samurai films tell human stories with rousing action and adventure. Exemplifying the archetype of a noble warrior, these characters continue to captivate audiences, whether they appear in stately period films or kitschy slashers. This series is presented in conjunction with the exhibit "Samurai: The Way of the Warrior," on view at the Frist Center through January 16, 2017. Don't miss a screening of "Seven Samurai" (1954) at the Frist Center on Friday, January 13.
