Sharaku - Based upon the brief but brilliant career of the 18th Century Japanese woodblock artist Sharaku whose works focused upon the Kabuki theater.
The ukiyo-e (woodblock print) artist Sharaku is an enigmatic puzzle in the world of Japanese art. Working at an age when such masters of the trade as Hokusai and Utamaro were at their zenith, Sharaku suddenly emerged out of obscurity and produced roughly 140 strikingly brilliant portraits of Kabuki performers, only to disappear just as suddenly. To date, no one knows about his true identity or about his post-ukiyo-e career.
Because the artist hasn't been identified by historians and we are not sure who he was, veteran director Masahiro Shinoda tries to fill in the blanks with this lavish period production.
