    • MIYAMOTO MUSASHI: UNRIVALLED SWORDSMAN AND SPIRITUAL SEEKER BETWEEN FACT AND FICTION
      Miyamoto Musashi (c. 1584-1645) was an unrivalled swordsman in the days when internal wars in Japan had virtually ended. Nevertheless, he wrote a master treatise on military strategy, "The Book of Five Rings" and sought the way to enlighten his spirit and cultivate his mind. But could his image have been fabricated by the generations that followed…?
      Mamoru Oshii will take on an unusual portrayal of this legendary and aloof warrior, between spectacular duels and a tragic life in pursuit of greatness.
