Japanese Cinema Club presents Throne of Blood — the fifth film of the "Night Parade of 1000 Demons" sequence, which brings a Japanese folkloric perspective of the supernatural to the Texas State audience. Participants will explore how Shakespeare's tragedy "Macbeth" has been transposed by prolific director Akira Kurosawa into Jidaigeki cinema. Participants will also be introduced to the amorphous Japanese forest spirit archetype, a shamanic figure who functions in between the human realm and the laws of nature.
