Sansho Dayu

Drawings from the film by the phenomenal Kenji Mizoguchi, in english Sansho the Baliff. It’s a dreadfully sad film about a family that is separated and sold into slavery in Medieval Japan. The top drawing is from a particularly emotive moment in the film. The anguish aside, the costumes were really good to look at for a less ornate, yet still patterned kimono/hakama.
