Sen Rikyu

Although 27 years have passed since the great tea master Sen no Rikyū died on the order of the general Toyotomi Hideyoshi, his favourite and last disciple, Hongakubo, communicates with him daily as if he were still alive. Over the course of the movie, Hongakubo uncovers the details of the mysterious last tea ceremony that Sen no Rikyū attended along with two of his disciples, a ceremony that went on until midnight, and at the end of which, all three—master and two disciples—died at their own hands.

Sen Rikyu, 28 June, 6:30 to 8:30 pm, The Japan Foundation, 5A, Ring Road, Lajpat Nagar- IV New Delhi. For more information, call 011-2644-2967
