The Life of Oharu (1952) is the morose story of a noble woman’s fall from grace. Oharu (Kinuyo Tanaka), the daughter of a samurai, relives the sorrows and humiliation brought on by her exile from the upper class. A tale of dishonor and defeat, Kenji Mizoguchi’s film explores Japanese society from a compassionate female perspective.

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.
