One of our favourite festivals, the Terracotta Festival, is coming up soon with it’s 2012 edition. This years festival takes place once again at the Prince Charles Cinema, London, although at an early date of 12 – 15 April. If you couldn’t come to previous editions due to exams, this year, there’s no excuse!
Opening the festival will be WW2 blockbuster MY WAY, reported as the most expensive Korean film ever made. The plot follows the stellar multi-country cast of Jang Dong-gun, Joe Odagiri and Fan Bing Bing across the battlefields of Asia to the beaches of Normandy. Directed by Kang je-kyu (SHIRI, TAEGUKI).
HIMIZU directed by Sono Sion (COLD FISH, LOVE EXPOSURE) and set in post-tsunami Fukushima, will close the festival.
Of particular interest will be their “discovery” series. ONE MILE ABOVE and RETURN TO BURMA are films shot in little explored regions of Asia by British people – Yunna to Lhasa bike ride and Burma, respectively
Expect the usual mix of parties, actors and directors and masterclasses. One new addition to the festival will be a TERROR COTTA HORROR NIGHT on Friday 13th – a triple bill horror-fest, with a few extras thrown in, that lasts till early hours of the morning! More details to follow.
