Stuff and Dough
(Marfa și banii)
A film by Cristi Puiu
Romania, 2001

"A suspenseful and thought-provoking work...Recalling several classic films including The Wages of Fear and Breathless... Stuff and Dough is a small triumph"
Film Journal International

Stuff and Dough is the debut feature film from award-winning director Cristi Puiu (The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, Aurora, Sieranevada). Notable for its low-key naturalism, suspense, subtle social commentary, and ethical and moral complexity, this film led and ushered in the miraculous New Romanian Cinema which is now applauded the world over.

Second Run present Stuff and Dough from a brand new HD restoration, and the DVD also includes Cristi Puiu's award-winning 2004 short film Cigarettes and Coffee (Un cartuș de Kent și un pachet de cafea, 2004), and a newly filmed, exclusive interview with the director.

Release Date: May 2016

Mysterious Object at Noon
(Dokfa nai meuman)
A film by Apichatpong Weerasethakul
Thailand, 2000

"Surprising and fascinating... I can't think of another film remotely like it"
Jonathan Rosenbaum

The gloriously sensuous films of Thai filmmaker and artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul have defined him as one of contemporary cinema’s most unique voices.

Mysterious Object at Noon is his hallucinatory debut feature, an extraordinary mix of experimental documentary and fiction that wends its way through the landscapes and mindscapes of rural Thailand. The daisy-chain structure of interlocking vignettes - alternately fantastical, comic and workaday - bridge documentary realism and the avant-garde, resulting in a boldly original debut that looks and feels like nothing else.

Available for the first time anywhere on Blu-ray (and also available on DVD) the film is presented from a new 2K restoration, and also includes exclusive special features.

Release Date: April 2016

Horse Money
(Cavalo Dinheiro)
A film by Pedro Costa
Portugal, 2014

“Costa has again made a singular docu-fiction hybrid that defies classification as readily as it reimagines the possibilities of cinema”
Scott Foundas, Variety

Winner of the Best Director prize at the 2014 Locarno Film Festival and featured in many Top 5 Films of the Year lists worldwide, Horse Money is a hauntingly beautiful contemplation of Portugal’s tumultuous past and uncertain future from a true poet of contemporary European cinema.

Release Date: March 2016

Something Different
(O něčem jiném) /
A Bagful of Fleas (Pytel blech)

Two films by Věra Chytilová
Czechoslovakia, 1963 / 1962

"One of the Czech New Wave’s most rebellious, irreverent and boundary-breaking talents... a vibrant innovator"
Carmen Grey, BFI

Two terrific early works from late, great Czech filmmaker Věra Chytilová (Daisies, Fruit of Paradise) - released for the first time on DVD.

Something Different follows two women – one strand as a documentary of a gymnast in gruelling training (real life Olympic gold-medallist Eva Bosáková), whilst the second is the fiction of a discontented housewife (Věra Uzelacová).
In A Bagful of Fleas, young factory girls defying imposed rules are played by non-professionals and the film shot in a free-wheeling cinéma vérité style.

Release Date: February 2016
