Death Before Dishonor

ArthouseFW, a year of carefully curated films, presented by the Lone Star Film Society, the Modern Art Museum and Kimbell Art museum of Fort Worth, shows Masaki Kobayashi’s 1962 masterpiece Harakiri as part of the Samurai Series presented in conjunction with the museum’s Samurai exhibition. The film, which won the Special Jury Award at Cannes in 1963, tells the story of a wayward samurai, Hanshiro Tsugumo, who enters the estate of a local lord’s home with the intention of committing seppuku, since he feels he has been disgraced, having no clan to call his own. The movie takes a deep look at the life of a samurai and examines the concepts of honor and justice. Showtime is 6 p.m. Friday at the Kimbell, 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth. Visit kimbellart.org/events or call 817-332-8451 for tickets and more information. Admission is $5 for members, $7 for non-members.
Fri., March 7, 6 p.m., 2014
