DARK SAMURAI: Watch The First Teaser Now
We have been keeping a close eye on the development of Sidney Lexi Plaut's Dark Samurai for some time now, drawn in by the gorgeous imagery and the presence of Valhalla Rising producer Lene Borglum on the production team of this hypnotic re-imagining of legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi with David Sakurai playing the iconic warrior. And with the premiere just around the corner at Camerimage we're proud to offer up the first teaser for the film.

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.

Take a look below.
