While we await the fate of Sidney Lexy Plaut’s Dark Samurai and Thomas Eikrem’s Le Accelerator, actor and rising action star David Sakurai has also been busy on his next project with writing and producing partner, filmmaker Shaky Gonzalez titled Echoes Of A Ronin. Twitchfilm broke the story on Wednesday with new photos from the upcoming shortfilm which wrapped just last month after about a month’s shoot.
The story is set in a contemporary Scandinavian/Asian environment with a universal story about injustice and loss of innocence combined with recognizing ones destiny.
This is all seen through the eyes of a child and through her experience see how man, despite being protected by morals and a strong code of honor, can be thrown off balance and become overtaken by jealousy, desire, love and revenge.
The film explores her loss of innocence, the child parent relationship with the ongoing struggle to find balance in life and ultimately, her victory over the traumatic experience.
