Terracotta Distribution

Lee Sang-woo Collection

Terracotta Distribution is proud to present seven films by controversial Korean auteur Lee Sang-woo, released for the first time in the UK exclusively to stream on the Terracotta website. A collection that will shock and provoke, but also move and inspire. Unafraid to shatter any taboo or to call out and criticise any idea, Lee Sang-woo’s stories depict Korean society’s ignored underbelly and examine the country and humanity as a whole at the micro and macro scale.

Institutions, religion, consumerism and many other aspects of modern life are the target of Lee Sang-woo’s ingenious social dissection, which explores the most fundamental human desires and instincts. 

Watch the Lee Sang-woo collection and selected Terracotta titles on their newly revamped website at http://www.terracottadistribution.com
 


Arrow Films
Latest releases

Orgies of Edo– now out on Blu-ray
https://arrowfilms.com/product-detail/orgies-of-edo-blu-ray/FCD1822
Legendary Toei director Teruo Ishii tells three stories of moral sickness set during Japan’s prosperous Genroku era in this bloody follow-up to his sexploitation classic Shogun’s Joy of Torture, and the fourth entry in Toei’s ‘abnormal love’ film series. Ishii’s politically incorrect moral lessons paint a trio of tales of tragic heroines caught up in violence, sadomasochism, incest and torture.

Father, Son, Sword: The Lone Wolf and Cub Saga- Paperback now out!
https://arrowfilms.com/product-detail/father–son–sword–the-lone-wolf-and-cub-saga–arrow-books-/AB009
The gripping saga of former shogunate executioner Itto Ogami and his son Daigoro, better known as Lone Wolf and Cub. Betrayed and exiled by the treacherous Yagyu clan, they wander feudal Japan as assassins on the road to hell. 
Written by Japanese film expert Tom Mes, Father, Son, Sword is the full story behind the films, the manga, and the phenomenon Lone Wolf and Cub.
