While the bulk of this year's Louis Vuitton Hawaii International Film Festival is pau, there is one more screening, this time a traditional Japanese silent film, accompanied with live music provided by the Honolulu Symphony and a renowned benshi (narrator).

"Kensei Araki Mataemon (Araki Mataemon, Master Swordsman)" will feature the symphony, conducted by Samuel Wong, and narrator Midori Sawato, in this 1935 production chronicling the adventures of Mataemon as he treks cross-country to help the lordless samurai Kawada Yunoshin. Sawato is a regular guest on the "Movies I Grew Up With" segment of the NHK program "Seikatsu Hot Morning."

Included in this "Reel to Real" program will be other orchestral selections associated with the silver screen, including Korngold's "Robin Hood Suite," Bernstein's "On the Waterfront: Symphonic Suite," Debussy's "Nocturnes: Fetes" and portions of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10 and Dvorak's Symphony No. 7.

» Place: Blaisdell Concert Hall
» Time: 8 p.m. today and 4 p.m. Sunday
» Tickets: $21, $33, $43, $51 and $64
