Terracotta Far East Festival 2012

Terracotta Distribution is gearing up for the 4th annual Terracotta Far East Film Festival in London.  This year’s festival will run from April 12th – 15th at the Prince Charles Cinema and will feature a wide selection of films from the Asian region curated by the UK-based distributor.

Both the opening and closing films have already been announced.  My Way, a war drama directed by Je-gyu Kang (Shiri, Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War) and the highest budget film in Korean history to date, will open the festival.  The film is an World War II epic that that spans Japan to the Battle of Normandy, about a pair of childhood friends, one Korean (Dong-gun Jang) and one Japanese (Jo Odagiri), who become separated by a violent incident then reunited as soldiers on the battlefield.  Closing the film will be provocateur Sion Sono’s latest Himizu (2011), a film set in post-tsunami Japan in which two teenagers embark on a campaign of violence against wrong-doers.  The film has already been picked up for UK distribution by Asian film boutique label Third Window Films.

For late nighters, Terracotta’s own version of the “midnight movie” festival event, “Terror Cotta”, which will fall on Friday the 13th and include a triple bill of films.

Beyond those events, other announcements have yet to be made, but be sure to keep your eye on the Terracotta Far East Festival 2012 page here for more information.
