Hanshiro Tsugumo (Tatsuya Nakadai), an aging, masterless samurai, enters a local lord’s home to virtuously end his life, when a revelation by the lord’s counsel unearths a new way for Hanshiro to regain his honor. Directed by the inimitable Masaki Kobayashi, Harakiri (1962) is a deep look into the life of a wayward samurai.

The ArthouseFW - Samurai Series present select films that highlight the unique and poetic life of the Samurai. Each film explores a new perspective of life as a warrior, whether the battle is for life, love or upholding the strict expectations of society. The series will play alongside the Kimbell Art Museum’s exhibition Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection in the brand new Renzo Piano pavilion. This installment of ArthouseFW is presented by the Lone Star Film Society and the Kimbell Art Museum.
