Terracotta Film Festival
On tonight's Lucky Cat radio show, I'll be joined live in the studio by Joey from Terracotta Distribution about the upcoming Terracotta Far East Film Festival.
This unique film festival features 15 hand-picked films from Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, and Thailand. Block busters such as the Jackie Chan film Little Big Soldier will be screened alongside lesser known nuggets such as the Korean musical comedy Antique.
I'm really looking forward to the epic Teddy Chan directed film Bodyguards and Assassins and am delighted to see there is also a documentary on the making of this film Development Hell (guess the title says it all!).
There's also a documentary on East Asian cinematographer of choice Christopher Doyle which is part of a double bill with another documentary by the same director, Yves Montmayeur , Yakuza Eiga (the history of yakuza cinema).
All this and a Johnny To film starring Lucky Cat favourite Anthony Wong Chau San and French national singing treasure Johnny Hallyday - Vengeance!
