I mavri Emmanouella / Emanuelle: Queen of Sados / Emanuelle's Daughter. 1980. DVD.

I mavri Emmanouella / Emanuelle: Queen of Sados / Emanuelle's Daughter. 1980. DVD.
 After years of abuse at the hands of her husband, a woman, Emmanouella, is pushed to the breaking point. She hires a hitman to do in her husband, but just when she thinks her troubles are at an end, the assassin blackmails her. As her husband's business partner struggles to prove her guilt, and as the hitman continues to threaten her new found security, Emmanouella struggles to keep her name clear and to keep her naive stepdaughter from becoming tangled in the web of danger she has created.
This is one of several films made to cash in on the success of the Black Emanuelle film series created by Bitto Albertini and continued by Joe D'Amato and Bruno Mattei. Though the film stars Laura Gemser (the star of the Black Emanuelle series) and she plays a character named Emanuelle (Emmanouella), it has nothing to do with the photojournalist character Emanuelle from the original series.
Director: Ilias Mylonakos.
Cast: Laura Gemser, Gabriele Tinti, Livia Russo, Haris Tryfonas, Nadia Neri, Gordon Mitchell, Pantelis Agelopou, Vagelis Vartan, Elli Kiriakidou, George Zenios, Tarita, Kathrin Maalouf, Anda Vartholomeou, Helen Danezi.

Nueve Comidas Lejos Del Caos / Nine Meals From Chaos. 2017.

Nueve Comidas Lejos Del Caos / Nine Meals From Chaos. 2017.
 ES. Ocho años después de un cataclismo, la raza humana, de la que sólo ha sobrevivido una de cada diez personas, ha perdido todas sus estructuras sociales. Nuevo proyecto de Iván Noel, parcialmente inspirado en "El señor de las moscas".
EN. What really happens after war or disease eventually wipes out most of humanity? Leaving aside fables of mass zombie invasion, or vigilante groups magically armed with assault weapons: how would humans actually re-group? How would they act when attempting to survive? How indeed would human morality and modern taboos fare in this probable scenario? This daring film will attempt to answer this as realistically as possible, making films like 'Lord of the Flies' look like a family camping trip.
Eight years after a cataclysm and disease ravaged the human race - leaving just one in every ten surviving -, all social structures have crumbled like sand castles. Too few still live for anything to have been reconstructed. All remaining animals have been consumed and no sowing has yet been possible. It is Man at his most basic, destitute level.
Two groups  inhabit the desolate and abandoned land: packs of orphaned children in a feral state, living a nomadic life-style for their safety, and adults (with their offspring), barely surviving any better by living off their meat.
It is a war only the most desperate of the two will win.

Там, где река чернеет / Where the river runs black. 1986.
 Where the River Runs Black is a 1986 film directed by Christopher Cain. The screenplay was written by Neal Jimenez and Peter Silverman, based on the novel Lazaro by David Kendall.
The film was entirely shot in Brazil, mostly in Belém and Rio Negro, Manaus.
Father O'Reilly, an older priest, tells the story of Father Mahoney, Eagle Woman, and their son Lazaro. It's magic realism in the Amazon. Mahoney is a radical priest who ventures upstream where the river runs black. He encounters the beautiful and enchanting Eagle Woman, who can change from a dolphin to a woman. A few years later, their child Lazaro witnesses inter-loping gold prospectors commit a brutal and traumatizing murder. He goes to the city in Father O'Reilly's care, and there he sees the murderer, who's a politician. Lazaro seeks revenge, which puts him in further danger. He runs back into the jungle, where the dolphins may be his best hope for help.
Director: Christopher Cain.

 JP. 寺山修司実験映像ワールド コンプリートBOX [1,000セット限定生産] / 邦画
20世紀の映像詩人・寺山修司が手掛けたシュールでアヴァンギャルドな映像作品集の4枚組BOX。 現存する最初の映画『檻囚』、書物を映画に翻訳し直し、「読む映像」を試みた『マルロドールの歌』ほか、全15作品を収録。

EN. Shūji Terayama (寺山 修司 Terayama Shūji, December 10, 1935 – May 4, 1983) was an avant-garde Japanese poet, dramatist, writer, film director, and photographer. Many critics view him as one of the most productive and provocative creative artists to come out of Japan. He has been cited as an influence on various Japanese filmmakers from the 1970s onward.
THE EXPERIMENTAL IMAGE WORLD OF SHUJI TERAYAMA, DVD four-volume box set. Tokyo: Daguerreo Press, Inc./Image Forum Video, 2006, color/monochrome, English subtitles, bilingual menu, audio commentaries (Japanese only) by Nobuhiro Kawanaka, Tatsuo Suzuki, Sakumi Hagiwara and Henriku Morisaki, 346 min.
In this edition presents the films Terayama Shūji 1962-1977.
INFO:
Shuji Terayama (1935-1983), one of Japan's most famous poets and playwrights, first wanted to become a photographer. While still a child he hung around the local photo parlor so often that his mother finally told him that so much picture-taking would make him dwindle away to nothing at all.
The magical properties of the photographic image, still or moving, stayed with him all of his life. In photographs and films as well as on the stage, he created his own kingdom, one based on his own childhood. In plays such as "La Marie Vision," feature films like "Cache-Cache Pastoral" and in the shorter films here collected, he created a place where mothers kill their young and children do indeed dwindle away to nothing at all.
Their world is set in the Taisho Era, one that Terayama was not old enough to remember but here reconstructs: flapper frocks, cloche hats, windup phonographs and the Victor dog, gakusei (student) uniforms, fundoshi (Japanese loin cloths), Japanese wedding kimono, loosened obi. All of this in a chaotic clutter and yet also arranged with a certain sense of style.
Terayama has elsewhere written that it is not the camera's ability to tell the truth that is interesting, but it is its ability to lie. He can make us truly believe in this claustrophobic, closed, dead world, where we are forced voyeurs. This four-DVD set of almost all of his shorter films (the very first, "Catology," has been lost for years) drags us into his disturbing kingdom -- a coherent and forceful expression of an imagination, dreamlike but startlingly real.
The earliest of these short films, "The Cage" (1964-69), introduces some of the recurring images: clocks, father-figures in black capes, body-builders. "Butterfly" (1974) reflects early memories -- shadows, people walking in front of the screen. (When a boy, Terayama used to sleep under the screen of a local movie theater and awake to gigantic images above him, and the shadows of viewers in front of the projector.)
In "Laura" (1974), movie memories turn self-referential. Two strippers on the screen start talking back to the audience: "Hey, you in the front row, stop it. Oh, we know what kind of people come to see experimental films!" The "Movie Guide for Young People" uses three screens and offers various transgressions -- including one actor who relieves himself on us (i.e. the camera lens).
"Labyrinth" (1975) takes us outside: two men trying to transport an entire doorway, complete with door. The door appears again in "Smallpox Story," which also features nails being driven into skulls. "Der Prozess," the last of the 1975 films, is an extended (34 min.) love scene that could probably not be shown in theaters even now.
"Father" is a portrait of his missing parent (killed in the Pacific War), and "The Eraser" (both 1977 films) includes a number of Terayama-like fetishes -- old photos erased or torn up, or stitched together. "Isumboshi" features the love-life of a dwarf, and "Shadow Film" is just that, shadows on the screen.
There are several more of these short films and there are two versions of the infamous "Emperor Tomato Ketchup" (1970). This film is about children in revolt. Like the kids in Jean Vigo's "Zero de Conduit," they take over and (in the words of Amos Vogel in "Film as a Subversive Art") "condemn their parents to death for depriving them of self-expression and sexual freedom." There is a lot of nudity and much simulated sex -- though killing a chicken on camera is perhaps the most distressful of the scenes.
The film has been often banned and the 75-minute original (here included) exists only as single 16-mm print. Terayama made a shortened version (27 min., here included) and there is an even shorter extract, the 12-min. "Jan-Ken-Po War" also included in this set.
Finally there is a compilation film, "Catalogue of Memory" (1977) by Michi Tanaka, a close associate of Terayama's, one in which Terayama himself appears.
The package is quite foreigner-friendly. The menu is bilingual, and English subtitles are provided whenever the text is on the sound track. When the text is a part of the image, however, as in "Les Chants de Maldoror," there is no translation. You can also buy these DVDs singly.
That the collection is sometimes upsetting is to be expected -- it was intended to be. Terayama is not only the sleeping child, he is also the sinister magician and through the magic of film he reigns over his embattled kingdom.
It is embattled because it is a vision of childhood with all the terror and cruelty retained, and because mother was right: If you take too many pictures you dwindle away. This dwindling process is called maturity. When you have entirely evaporated you are an adult.

The Geisha Boy. 1958.

Мальчик гейша / The Geisha Boy. 1958.
 The Geisha Boy is a 1958 American comedy film starring Jerry Lewis, distributed by Paramount Pictures. Filmed from June 16 to August 7, 1958, it had its first screening in New York City on December 19, 1958. This film marked the film debut of Suzanne Pleshette.
Gilbert "The Great" Wooley (Jerry Lewis) is a down-on-his-luck magician who has been invited to entertain GIs in Japan. However, even before his flight from Los Angeles has taken off the ground, he unwittingly -- and with some participation of his pet, friend and co-star in the act, Harry the rabbit -- incurs the wrath of the show's headliner, actress Lola Livingston (Marie McDonald), with a series of unfortunate accidents. Upon their arrival, as he tries to apologize to Lola, he causes her more embarrassment by tearing up her dress, knocking her down the gangway, and rolling her up in the red carpet to cover up her lack of proper attire.
An orphan, Mitsuo Watanabe (Robert Hirano), who attends the reception in the company of his aunt Kimi Sikita (Nobu McCarthy), an interpreter for the United Service Organizations, or USO, witnesses the spectacle and laughs for the first time since his parents died. When Kimi brings the boy to Gilbert to thank him, he and the boy become close. This, however, irritates the aunt's boyfriend Ichiyama (Ryuzo Demura), a Japanese baseball player; and his subsequent chase of Wooley, which culminates with Ichiyama's fall into a bathhouse pool that floods the street outside, almost motivates the furious USO commander Major Ridgley (Barton MacLane) to revoke Wooley's entertainment-service status. Wooley's USO liaison Sergeant Pearson (Suzanne Pleshette), who has fallen for him, is able to reverse that decision - though it is under the condition that Wooley perform for the American troops at the Korean frontlines. However, she becomes jealous of Gilbert's growing relationship with Kimi.
In time, Gilbert, Mitsuo, and Mitsuo's family become inseparable, but Wooley's failure as a troop entertainer makes Ridgley remand him back to the United States. Not wanting to disappoint Mitsuo by letting him find out that he has been a total flop, Gilbert tries to sneak away when it is time for him to return. Mitsuo follows him, and Gilbert is forced to pretend that he no longer cares for the boy, which makes him cry. However, Mitsuo still follows him to America by stowing away on the plane. Once in America, they are reunited, but Gilbert is accused of kidnapping Mitsuo, who is then returned to Japan.

Девочка-модель / Girl Model. 2011.
 A documentary on the modeling industry's 'supply chain' between Siberia, Japan, and the U.S., told through the experiences of the scouts, agencies, and a 13-year-old model.
GIRL MODEL follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries, Nadya, a thirteen year-old plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the center of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career. After Ashley’s initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound. As Nadya’s optimism about rescuing her family from their financial difficulties grows, her dreams contrast against Ashley’s more jaded outlook about the industry’s corrosive influence.
