Pitch-black study of lust and guilt as controversial as Lars Von Trier Films.

We are very excited to announce details of our latest acquisition ...

After a packed screening at Terracotta Far East Film Festival in May and Q&A with lead actor, SEO Young-ju, Terracotta Distribution will release MOEBIUS, Kim Ki-duk's daring portrayal of a dysfunctional family, filmed entirely without dialogue.

“ ... Moebius is one of the most powerful experiences of the year." - Pierce Conran, Twitch Film

“A weird, powerful, engaging, utterly bonkers Oedipal fairy tale.”- Little White Lies

The film will open at the CURZON SOHO and cinemas nationwide for one week only from Friday 8 August, including a day and date release with Curzon Home Cinema.
The Irish opening is set for Friday 15 August at the IRISH FILM INSTITUTE.

More MOEBIUS news, competitions and cinema information coming soon!

Korean promotions at Terracotta

So would you call someone into Korean culture a 'Han-o-phile'? Do let us know what the correct term is!

Anyways, we have intimated that our lack of blog posting is not due to lack of activity inside of Terracotta Towers.

We had a busy time helping to promote a K-pop tour in the UK that saw the United Cube artists take over Brixton Academy (http://kpopconcerts.com/kpop-features/united-cube-concert-london-2011-co...) and we were working on a competition in conjunction with the Asian record label, the UK record label and Kpopconcerts.com (with thanks to Sophia and Jeremy there). See the excellent review from the kpopconcerts site and photos here:

We have noticed though, that kpop fans may not be into Korean films (they might touch upon K-drama's given the ubiquity of pop stars cast in the prime time soap machines) although, on the other side, Korean film fans have some knowledge about Kpop bands and songs - let's try re-address that and share your DVDs and film knowledge with the Kpop cousins!

On the subject of all things Korean, we participated in an interview conducted by Koreanfilm.or.kr, an influential and authoritative website following Korean film production news as well as international developments - read the comprehensive article by industry expert Robert Mitchell, here: http://koreanfilm.or.kr/webzine/sub/column.jsp?mode=A_VIEW&wbSeq=3

For the final note, we have been watching plenty of Korean films of course, to sift through and find the gems to showcase to you in 2012 at the Terracotta Festival ( 12 - 15 April) and working hard on some contracts for films that are already known to us, to distribute on DVD and hopefully cinema next year!
