September 27 / 7:00 PM - September 27 / 10:00 PM
This Friday, we will be watching "The Bermese Harp" (1956) directed by Kon Ichikawa. Starring Rentaro Mikuni, Shoji Yasui, and Jun Hamamura.
At the close of World War II, a Japanese army regiment in Burma surrenders to the British. Private Mizushima is sent on a lone mission to persuade a trapped Japanese battalion to surrender. When the outcome fails, he disguises himself in the robes of a Buddhist monk in hope of temporary anonymity as he journeys across the landscape -- but he underestimates the power of his assumed role. (116 minutes)
