Guy Moshe’s film Bunraku will be screened at the 23rd Tokyo International Film Festival after a successful debut at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier last month.
The film stars Japanese pop icon, GACKT, alongside Hollywood hard-hitters Demi Moore, Josh Hartnett and veteran actor, Woody Harrelson.
Bunraku takes place in a hyper-dystopian society where guns are banned in favour of the sword. Combining elements of manga, spaghetti western, samurai films and videogames in this stimulating vision of an alternate world where traditional fist and sword fighting are revered.
This movie marks GACKT’s Hollywood debut.
The film will be released in the US in December 2010.
