Ethnic Look:

A grizzled, veteran warrior who has given up on the samurai lifestyle. Possesses a legendary sword that prevents him from losing in battle. However, the sword has caused him to receive no joy, honor or passion from fighting. Katsu now fights only when absolutely necessary. He has very cynical views toward “honorable” samurai like Dorin. Katsu also resents the legendary reputation he has garnered because he does not believe that he has earned it.

Student Film


FSU MFA Thesis Film:
Set during the social and political turmoil of the Warring States period in Japan, Dokkodo chronicles the journey of Katsu, an older samurai who has given up on the ways of the warrior. When Katsu was a young man, he killed a powerful samurai to obtain a legendary sword that prevents him from dying in combat. But this gift came at a price. The legendary sword has led Katsu to achieve no joy or honor from fighting, even causing him to resign from the samurai lifestyle and become a vagrant traveler. When Dorin Monsesuke, a prominent samurai lord, discovers Katsu’s whereabouts, he attempts to get Katsu to fight once more. A heated ideological battle erupts between the two men, ending in a bloody conflict that leads Katsu to regain his honor.
