Here’s one that we’ve been wholeheartedly recommending sight unseen: a pink film directed by the the acclaimed Shinji Imaoka, 2004 winner of the Best Director prize at the Pink Grand Prix (the pink industry’s Academy Awards), shot by Christopher Doyle (Chungking Express), with a Euro-hipster soundtrack by German/French duo Stereo Total, and a script once drafted by Midnight Eye co-founder Tom Mes. Talk about international, talk about all-star, and the talk at the festivals is that Underwater Love is indeed a one-of-a-kind experience.
Our friends at Third Window Films have acquired the film and is hosting its UK premiere at the Rich Mix in London on October 16th. In addition to the film, audiences will be treated to a performance by Stereo Total.
The UK DVD release of Underwater Love is scheduled for November 21st. For more information, check out Third Window Films’ site.
