Bisbee '17 got some glowing comments in the recent year end round up of the Cinephiliacs podcast that has made me quite interested in seeing it. It apparently has a structure involving the townsfolk in 2017 getting involved in centenary re-staging of a significant past historical event from 1917 that makes it seem quite similar to The Act of Killing.
It's an amazing interrogation of past and present that manages to resonate with more contemporary issues than we should still be dealing with. Sadly, it didn't even make the shortlist for the Oscars.

Thanks for the BISBEE mention!!

We also just released Affonso Uchôa and João Dumans' ARABY on DVD (which includes a second feature, their first collaboration, THE HIDDEN TIGER).

And our second Straub-Huillet release, CHRONICLE OF ANNA MAGDALENA BACH, comes out on blu-ray and DVD on February 5.

Lastly, for any Bertrand Bonello admirers out there, our album, MUSIC FROM THE FILMS OF BERTRAND BONELLO, is also available. It's a limited edition (500 only) and pressed on translucent orange vinyl.

Thanks again!

I just received this and was delighted to find the bonus feature (and a short too).

Araby is one of the best films of the last ten years, folks: grab it!

Not sure where else to post this but it's owned by Grasshopper. There is a doc on Lucretia Martel and Zama that can be rented/purchased on prime https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MH6BWW2/re ... xCbSJE4YDT
An illustration of filmmaking's many stages and complex artistic collaboration with its subject, Manuel Abramovich's new film concerns Lucrecia Martel during the making of her fourth feature, "Zama". "Light Years" far surpasses the familiar form of behind-the-scenes features, proving as much an intimate portrait of the working artist as it does an emulation of Martel's tendencies.
Zama was my favorite film of 2018 by a large margin and I was really disappointed that it got such barebones release so hopefully this will be enlightening (planning to watch it after work).

This was indeed a great film. The framing story reminded me a lot of a Veiroj film though the central storytelling device and how it manipulates our sense of the image was quite like Extraordinary Stories. Basically it's great though the subs have a could of mistakes in them (like it saying n't instead of wouldn't). Now to the extras.

The BACH blu is visually improved upon the New Yorker DVD. The subtitles are fixed on both the feature and the extras. The feature has Magdalena’s narration in English with dramatic dialogue in German. (This was authorised in 1967 by Straub.) The DVD is unique since it contains the full German soundtrack and the archival featurette made in 1967. (For some inexplicable reason these are absent on the blu). The disc is region free.

For anyone lucky enough to see Blake Williams' extraordinary 3D feature PROTOTYPE in theaters last year, or for anyone interested in seeing it, there's currently an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for a release of the film on a limited edition 3D Blu-ray.

Check out the campaign at https://igg.me/at/prototype-3d-blu/x/18811032

There's some great perks there at various tiers, including some of our own releases. The campaign runs until April 28.

Thanks.
