THE PASS: LAST DAYS OF THE SAMURAI

Preceded by Opening Night Reception at 6:30pm

Advance screening in Toronto!

In 1867, political power returned to the Emperor and 260 years of the Tokugawa Shogunate came to an end. Civil war erupts between imperial loyalists in the west and the remaining shogunate in the east. Caught between both armies, Tsuginosuke Kawai, chief retainer of the Nagaoka domain in Echigo, decides to remain neutral in order to safeguard the lives of his clan. When his attempts at brokering peace through negotiation fail, however, Kawai resolves to face the end of the samurai era with dignity.

Takashi Koizumi, assistant director to Akira Kurosawa on films including Kagemusha and Ran, creates classic samurai cinema, replete with gorgeous period costumes, sets and epic battle scenes.
