I think the only one of Li's other films in distribution in Japan is  
"Aji" ("Dream Cuisine"). You can get it (only in Japanese) through  
Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.jp/味-DVD-李纓/dp/B0009I8WGM) and it's  
listed at Tsutaya online.

Asahi Shimbun Shuppansha has just published a short book by Li Ying,  
also called "Yasukuni" (including a taidan with Tsuchimoto Noriaki  
and another with the free-thinking nationalist Suzuki Kunio).

Li's company, Dragon Films, has a homepage, with information on his  
other films: http://www.dragonfilms.co.jp/index.html
