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
Orgies of Edo– out on Blu-ray November 19th
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.
