The movie will be shown (with subtitles) at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 14 at LA EigaFest in Hollywood. As described by the promoters,

The film, released this summer in Japan, follows goofy, gentle samurai Kenshin Himura, a former assassin who tries to redeem himself by vowing not to kill. As you guess, that vow is put to the test for Kenshin and his sakaba-to, a blade designed as a backwards katana in order to not inflict mortal wounds on his enemies.

Here’s a subtitled version of the trailer:
