Shinji Imaoka's "Underwater Love" gets its UK premiere and a live soundtrack by Stereo Total

by Chris MaGee

Shinji Imaoka's latest film "Underwater Love: A Pink Musical" has been winning fans around the international festival circus since premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this past April. The film tells the story of Asuka (Masaki Sawa) a married woman whose uneventful life working in a fish processing plant is shaken up both psychologically and sexually when she encounters a kappa, a mythical spirit of Japanese folklore.

Besides being shot by legendary cinematographer Christopher Doyle and scripted by Midnight Eye's Tom mes "Underwater Love" has a soundtrack composed by German/French synth-pop duo Stereo Total. Now there is word via the film's UK distributor, Third Window Films, that for its UK premiere Stereo Total will be on hand to perform the soundtrack to "Underwater Love" LIVE!

The screening and performance will be happening Sunday, October 16 at 6:30pm at Rich Mix
(36-47 Bethnal Green Road) in London. Besides Stereo Total's live soundtrack set there will also be a party with various DJ sets. Sounds like a ton of fun, so if you're in London make sure to check it out. In the meantime take a listen to Stereo Total's track "L'Amour" below.
