The Kiyotaka Tsurisaki’s “Trilogy of Death” is getting the TetroVideo box set treatment. The company have announced will be releasing two box sets of the Kiyotaka Tsurisaki Shockumentary Collection that includes Orozco: The Embalmer (2001), Junk Films (2007) and The Wasteland (2014).

Both box sets will be available for pre-order from TOMORROW, April 30th.

The “Limited Edition Box Set” has only 170 copies and the “Golden Edition” is limited to just 30 numbered copies:

  • 3-disc Box Set + Slipcase – 170 copies Limited Edition
  • 3-disc Box Set + gold Slipcase + gold Card – 30 numbered copies

Written and directed by Kiyotaka Tsurisaki, who has become known for photographing dead bodies, Orozco: The Embalmer is a shockumentary about the Colombian embalmer Froilan Orozco Duarte, about his grim work in one of the poorest and most dangerous parts in Colombia: Bogotà. Junk Films is a collection of short documentaries pondering about the meaning of life and death by the use of shocking images.

In Junk Films, Kiyotaka Tsurisaki focuses on the subject of war to offer a startling look at the aftermath of combat and on death’s many forms (disasters, starvation, tragic accidents) to highlight the fragility of human life. The Wasteland is a look into the world around us, into the aftermath of war, religion and other evil facets that aid in the destruction of Earth; to set the mood for the film, Kiyotaka Tsurisaki teams up with the Japanese doom metal band Corrupted.
