Village East Cinema: the twilight show of Uzumasa Limelight.

I lean into the swinging door of Theater 3. The room swooshes open,

empty as a toothless mouth. I am inside a secret. The hero

in the film is a kirare-yaku: his purpose is to die in sword fights

in the movies. He has died some 50,000 times.

The art of dying in samurai movies is dying.
