terracotta film club vulgariaTerracotta Distribution launched the Terracotta Film Club in January 2013, a monthly film residency at the legendary, Home OF Cult Film in London - Prince Charles Cinema.

Following the sell out of Jackie Chan’s Police Story last month, this month Terracotta Film Club will be showing Pang Ho-Cheung’s Vulgaria. Pang Ho-Cheung (Dream Home, You Shoot I Shoot, AV) is the bad boy and one of the masters of contemporary Hong Kong cinema.

Vulgaria is a comedy centred on a veteran film producer with major financial and family troubles who is lured into remaking a classic adult movie for the leader of a triad gang. It is both a witty satire of the film industry and a gross-out comedy: hilarious, raucous and totally outrageous. For this February edition, Terracotta are very pleased to be hosting the first UK screening of Vulgaria outside of the festival circuit and promise an experience you won't forget.

To (Chapman To Man-chak), a long-time film producer, has yet to produce anything resembling a hit. Beset by financial troubles, he has become desperate for money - so much so that he is unable to pay the alimony to his ex-wife (Kristal Tin).

Despite his former spouse's bitterness, their daughter still clings onto her faith in him - and wishes to see him on TV once his new movie premiers  To is soon introduced to a potential Mainland Chinese investor, Tyrannosaurus (Ronald Cheng), by his buddy Lui Wing-shing (Simon Loui Yu-yeung), but Tyrannosaurus is not only the head of a Guangxi triad gang, he turns out to have very particular tastes in food and sex. Regardless, To is determined to woo this investor, even if it means giving into his every demands. Tyrannosaurus eventually tells them to cast his childhood idol Yum Yum Shaw (Susan Shaw) in a remake of a classic pornographic film. He even gives the film the title Confessions of Two Concubines...

The 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.
