This epic tale concerns honor and duty during a time when the old traditional order is breaking down. Attendees will be joined via Skype by film editor Richard Pepperman, author of the forthcoming book “Everything I Know About Filmmaking I Learned Watching Seven Samurai.’
This film is too big to be contained in one session; so a viewing and discussion of the second half will be held on Tuesday November 18th.
