Directed by Shinya Tsukamoto (Japan, 2018, 80 min.).

Set in Japan during the tumultuous mid-19th century Edo period, Killing is the story of a masterless samurai named Mokunoshin Tsuzuki. As an impending war threatens peace and tranquility across the land, the swordsman feels overcome by a creeping restlessness. Killing is a stark consideration of violence and honor handled with masterful artistry by one of contemporary Japanese cinema’s most essential auteurs.
