It's been a long road for Sidney Lexy Plaut and his debut feature Dark Samurai. A hypnotic, experimental piece of work revolving around the folklore surrounding legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi produced with the help of Valhalla Rising producer Lene Borglum and David Sakurai in the lead role, the picture has been winding its way through post for a little while now but there is good news for those who have been waiting with word that it will soon premiere at the Camerimage festival in Poland. Worth waiting for? Take a look at the gorgeous imagery in the gallery below and see for yourself.

Dark Samurai is inspired by the legend of Miyamoto Musashi, who was one of the most famous Japanese ronin and warrior philosophers. This alternate and very visual interpretation of the fate Musashi is brought into a mixture of a contemporary Yakuza underworld and a hypnotic Samurai after-life. We flow seamlessly through life, death, rebirth and the afterlife and challenge our traditional definition of the past, present and future.

The film explores the agonizing and painful emotions that go through the shattered mind of Musashi, as he desperately tries to hold on to the only thing he has left - The rapidly fading memories of his undying love for a woman named, Otsu. A love that for a Yakuza-Samurai is strictly forbidden and which will prove to have catastrophic consequences.
