VOD Spotlight

Each month Terracotta showcases three titles on their VOD platform. This month there is action, horror and drama.

1) Jackie Chan: Project A
Jackie enrols in Her Majesty’s marine police corps, during 19th century British colonial Hong Kong in this action comedy. Unforgettable scenes like the bar fight with Sammo Hung, Yuen Biao and Jackie all slugging it and the infamous clock tower stunt.

A mysterious intensive yoga retreat for five students tests their limits when, in addition to full-on yoga, they must resist various temptations presented to them. And in time honoured grindhouse film tradition, inevitably unpleasant fates befall them when they break the rules…

3) Independencia
Set in the Philippines during the start of the American Occupation in the early 1900s, Raya Martin’s film, shot entirely in black and white, revolves around three generations of a family who flees the impending conflict in the city and tries to survive in the jungle.

About the author

Rouven Linnarz

Ever since I watched Takeshi Kitano's "Hana-Bi" for the first time (and many times after that) I have been a cinephile. While much can be said about the technical aspects of film, coming from a small town in Germany, I cherish the notion of art showing its audience something which one does normally avoid, neglect or is unable to see for many different reasons. Often the stories told in films have helped me understand, discover and connect to something new which is a concept I would like to convey in the way I talk and write about films. Thus, I try to include some info on the background of each film as well as a short analysis (without spoilers, of course), an approach which should reflect the context of a work of art no matter what genre, director or cast. In the end, I hope to pass on my joy of watching film and talking about it.
