Police Story is a fast paced and funny action flick that sees Jackie Chan as an idealistic cop crowned the best of the best by Hong Kong’s top brass. He soon finds himself on the wrong side of the law when a vengeful drug lord frames him for the murder of a fellow cop. All Jackie has is his fists and feet to battle through the throngs  of underworld thugs climaxing in one of Hong Kong’s most exhilarating sequences.

“Terracotta Film Club” aims to keep Asian films in cinemas, via showing a mix of both classics and new releases, and to introduce the next generation of film fans to Asian cinema. Terracotta are very pleased to be showing Asian films regularly, right in the heart of London.

Gregory Lynn of the Prince Charles Cinema says: “Given the wealth of knowledge the people behind Terracotta Distribution have when it comes to cinema from the Far East, we couldn't think of a better group of people to bring more of it to our screen.  Over the years they've presented many mind-blowing new releases to our screen at their annual Film Festival and the thought of them bringing some much-loved classics back to the big-screen is one which has the entire team here very excited.”

Terracotta are committed to bringing quality and entertaining Far East films to the UK. Releases by Terracotta Distribution include the multi-award winning Breathless directed by Yang Ik-june, Johnnie To’s Sparrow and just released Kim Ki-duk debut movie Crocodile with his documentary Arirang. A newly launched imprint label TERROR-COTTA will be devoted to Asian horror and thrillers.
