THE TERRACOTTA FAR EAST FILM FESTIVAL




THE TERRACOTTA FAR EAST FILM FESTIVAL IS BACK IN LONDON, UK

TO PRESENT ITS SECOND ROUND-UP
OF CHOICE FILMS FROM THE FAR EAST!


OFFICIAL FESTIVAL WEBSITE


From Thursday 6th to Sunday 9th May 2010, there’s fantastic lineup of 15 hand-picked films from Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, and Thailand.

The festival opens with the UK premiere of Little Big Soldier starring Jackie Chan. Set during the tumultuous period when China had yet to be born from the unification of seven warring states, this story follows Big Soldier (Jackie Chan), an ex-farmer and reluctant conscript from the state of Liang.

A brilliant comedy and touching tale reportedly 20 years in the making, Little Big Soldier looks set to be a new favourite for fans of Jackie Chan fans, action flicks and road trip movies and will be released theatrically later in the year, courtesy of Cine Asia.


Phobia (out on DVD from 10th May 2010 courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment) features four chilling tales from modern-day Thailand by four masters of horror. In the last decade, Thai filmmakers have brought a new and refreshing perspective to the face of horror.

Black magic, superstition and the scary side of the supernatural abound in this collective of four tales, which are sure to take root in the more terrifying depths of your imagination.

The closing night film is the multi-award winning Bodyguards and Assassins and another UK premiere.




Hong Kong, 1905. Revolution instigator Sun Yat Sen is about to visit Hong Kong for five hours only, for a covert meeting with the leaders of a planned coup from all the provinces in China. On hearing this, the Imperial Court dispatches an elite team of assassins to Hong Kong to deal with him. Fervent revolutionary and Sun's contact in Hong Kong, Chen Shaobai (Tony Leung Ka Fai), is alerted, and out of desperation he assembles a motley crew of inexperienced fighters to escort Sun safely to his meeting and back.

Brilliantly shot with large-scale recreations of Hong Kong during the turn of the 20th century, this film is a fast-paced cat-and-mouse game which will have you on the edge of your seat. Bodyguards and Assassins will be playing at selected UK cinemas and is available to buy on DVD and Blu-Ray (courtesy of E1 Entertainment) on 31st May 2010.
