Terracotta Festival organisers break the news of their Opening Film on twitchfilm.net.
Jackie Chan’s latest film, ‘Little Big Soldier’, a period-action road-trip movie, will open the festival on 6th May 2010.
The film by Ding Sheng is set during the time when China wasn’t yet a country and was still comprised of seven warring states. Jackie Chan plays a reluctant conscript from one of these states and finds himself fortuitously capturing an enemy general, whom he planned to bring back to his home state to trade for discharge from army service.
Other highlights from the four- day festival include: Soi Cheang’s ‘Accident’ (which was In Competition at Venice Film Festival 2009), Japanese indie feature ‘Fish Story’ (can a punk rock song save the world from a meteorite?), and Korean gay-cake-store musical ‘Antique’ (an adaptation of the popular Japanese manga series Seiy? Kott? Y?gashite).
The festival will also include a documentary double-bill from doc-maker Yves Montmayeur: ‘In The Mood For Doyle’, which closely follows celebrated cinematographer Christopher Doyle, and ‘Yakuza Eiga’, an examination of the importance of Yakuza cinema, featuring many interviews from past and present Japanese actors and directors as well as real-life Yakuza.
Full-line up announcements will be made in the coming weeks via press release and their website: www.TerracottaFestival.com
