This work examines a fight scene from samurai film, The Blind Swordsman Meets the One-Armed Swordsman. Here the fighters have been removed and a model set has been built. The edits and camera movements remain exactly as the original exposing the architecture of the fight scene and implicating the viewer in the action.

In the original movie the two warriors end up fighting because of a cultural misunderstanding. Neither is "bad" guy. These rather handicapped fighters simply misunderstand each other because of cultural difference and their impassioned attempt to do the right thing. I wanted to exploit this rather comical and ultimately tragic story because of its obvious relationship to the human condition.
