Third Window Films Newsletter #85
Welcome to the Third Window Films newsletter for June 2018! We’ve got some interesting news for upcoming releases plus a look at other Asian-film related happenings in the UK!


ANIMERAMA: 1001 NIGHTS / CLEOPATRA
Out June 18! Now available to pre-order! 

Third Window Films are pleased to announce the WORLD’S FIRST BLURAY release of two rare animations from the “Godfather of Manga” TEZUKA OSAMU: 1001 NIGHTS and CLEOPATRA as a double disc, limited edition set coming JUNE 18th
In the late 60s, Tezuka Osamu with his production company MUSHI PRO and director EIICHI YAMAMOTO (Belladonna of Sadness) started a very short run series of X-RATED animations called ANIMERAMA. The series only really officially made these two films before Mushi Pro went bankrupt, but they have been totally forgotten in history and we are very happy to bring them back with new 2K remasters.
The release will feature many NEW & EXCLUSIVE extra features including an interview with director Eiichi Yamamoto, audio commentaries on both films by Helen Mccarthy, author of
 The Art of Osamu Tezuka: God of Manga, plus 4K scanned trailers and liner notes by film critic Simon Abrams

*ALSO AVAILABLE ON DVD for a special pre-order price of just £9.99 if you order now!
Limited to 2000 copies only on Bluray and 1000 on dvd
PRE-ORDER at: https://amzn.to/2EgWZDJ

SUFFERING OF NINKO
London Screening & Video release!

Young monk Ninko leads an ascetic existence in the Enmeiji temple, but his dedication to a life of simplicity and sexual abstinence is made impossible by the curse that seems to afflict him: he is irresistible to every woman (and some of the men) he meets. Pursued by a posse of half-naked, crazed women and a mysterious, faceless nymph, he flees high into the mountains, where he can finally discover his true nature.

The Suffering of Ninko is a wild, jaw-dropping fever dream of a film that must be seen to be believed.” Indiewire
For lovers of the truly bizarre, this is a must-see.” Cinapse
Suffering Of Ninko is a home run. A cult in the making” High on Films
Undeniably outlandish. A bold and striking debut.” Eastern Kicks

BOOK NOW AT: https://www.picturehouses.com/cinema/Picturehouse_Central/film/lkff-2018-teaser-1987-when-the-day-comes

Trailer: https://youtu.be/EIFuytWlySM

WINNER OF THE AUDIENCE AWARD AT THE 2018 UDINE FAR EAST FILM FESTIVAL!
Highly regarded director Jang Joon-hwan (Save the Green Planet, 2003) has made his most ambitious film to-date with this fast-paced, tightly plotted political thriller based on the shocking true events of 1987 Korea. Like last year’s A Taxi Driver, 1987: When the Day Comes gives the blockbuster treatment to a turbulent period, resulting in an exciting thrill-ride of a film that never loses sight of the human drama at its core.
 


Arrow Films
Akio Jissoji’s BUDDHIST TRILOGY out June 25!

Akio Jissôji created a rich and diverse body of work during his five decades in Japan’s film and television industries.

For others, it is his 1990s adaptations of horror and mystery novelist Edogawa Rampo, such as Watcher in the Attic and Murder on D Street. And then there are his New Wave films for the Art Theatre Guild, three of which – This Transient LifeMandara and Poem, forming The Buddhist Trilogy – are collected here.

All the latest Japanese music news!

ROA Get Ready for UK Debut With New Music Video

Shamisen rockers ROA have unleashed the first music video from their exclusive overseas album RODIAC via JPU Records. The music video is shot entirely in France while the band performed at Japan Expo Sud earlier this year. They’ll be heading to this summer’s HYPER JAPAN for their first UK performance.

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BURvl3oNJa4 

ROA’s unique sound juxtaposes western punk-rock spirit with traditional eastern melody, a concept they’ve dubbed “和洋折衷/ Wayo Settyu” –literally meaning “the blending of Japanese and western styles”. Formed by the drummer of Japan’s legendary chart-topping ska-punk outfit SNAIL RAMP, ROA manage to propel their country’s three-stringed traditional instrument, the Tsugaru-shamisen, into the 21st century by implementing its iconic sound in new and exciting ways.

Download, stream or buy the band’s CD by clicking here.
