Next Wednesday 24th April The Terracotta Film Club will screen the classic Japanese vengeance movie Lady Snowblood (修羅雪姫, Shurayukihime). The 1973 film is directed by Toshiya Fujita and stars Meiko Kaji, based on a manga called Shurayukihime it tells the story of Yuki, a woman who seeks vengeance upon three people who raped her mother and killed her mother's husband and son. The film is widely known to be the inspiration for Tarantino's Kill Bill movies.

The Terracotta Film Festival is going to be bigger and better than ever this year and I am super excited about it. Not least because this year there will be a section dedicated to the films of Leslie Chueng and Anita Mui! The festival will run for a magnificent 10 days across two venues: The Prince Charles and the ICA.
I'll be bringing you more festival news soon but for now mark down 6th June on your calendars as that's when it all kicks off (insert martial arts film joke here).

Well my vintage amp is finally mended and I can record from vinyl to mp3 again. First up I've recorded a mix of Reggae 45s for your listening pleasure. Some of these are Soul/RnB covers which I really love e.g. The Marvels version of The Ronettes' Be My Baby. Next up I think it's time for a Wong Kar Wai inspired mix....Watch this space....
