KCRW Partner Screening: ‘Shōgun’

Feb 12 • 7:30 pm PST

KCRW Member Perk:Members receive timed priority admission to KCRW Partner Screenings

KCRW and FX invite you to a special advance screening of the FX original series, Shōgun, at the Japanese American National Museum. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Co-Creators Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks, Producer and Star Hiroyuki Sanada, and Stars Cosmo Jarvis and Anna Sawai moderated by ABC7 Eyewitness News Anchor, David Ono.

FX’s Shōgun, an original adaptation of James Clavell’s bestselling novel, is set in Japan in the year 1600 at the dawn of a century-defining civil war. Hiroyuki Sanada stars as Lord Yoshii Toranaga who is fighting for his life as his enemies on the Council of Regents unite against him. When a mysterious European ship is found marooned in a nearby fishing village, its English pilot, John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis), comes bearing secrets that could help Toranaga tip the scales of power and devastate the formidable influence of Blackthorne’s own enemies — the Jesuit priests and Portuguese merchants. Toranaga’s and Blackthorne’s fates become inextricably tied to their translator, Toda Mariko (Anna Sawai), a mysterious Christian noblewoman and the last of a disgraced line. While serving her lord amidst this fraught political landscape, Mariko must reconcile her newfound companionship with Blackthorne, her commitment to the faith that saved her and her duty to her late father.
