Fruit of Paradise
(Ovoce stromů rajských jíme)

A film Věra Chytilová
Czechoslovakia, 1969

"Luridly subversive... impossible to summarize and hard to resist" Village Voice

Věra Chytilová followed her iconic film Daisies (1966) with the even more extraordinary Fruit of Paradise. Examining issues of truth and lies, friendship and betrayals she creates, through a symbolic retelling of the Adam and Eve story, a ravishing tapestry of ideas, textures, and visual tropes set to composer Zdeněk Liška's incredible score.

The DVD is presented from a new HD digital transfer, and also includes her renowned 1961 short film Ceiling (Strop).

A film by Yorgos Lanthimos
Greece, 2005

"Unique and defies genre categorization... The film is, by turns, harsh, mysterious, obscure, striking, involving and compellingly driven" Toronto Film Festival Daily

Available for the first time anywhere on home video, this darkly comic and compellingly hypnotic film is the extraordinary debut feature of Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps and the forthcoming The Lobster), one of Greek cinema's most acclaimed new directors.

The DVD is presented from a new director-approved HD digital transfer, and also features an exclusive new interview with director Yorgos Lanthimos filmed at Tate Modern, London.

Release Date: January 2015

Pictures of the Old World
(Obrazy starého sveta)

A film by Dušan Hanák
Czechoslovakia, 1972

"One of the greatest works of documentary cinema" Peter Hames

Dušan Hanák's renowned film was voted by critics as the best Slovak film of all time. Inspired by the photographs of Slovak artist Martin Martinček whose pictures distilled entire lifetimes into luminous and intransient images, Hanák created his own distinctive impressions of the artist's work in reflecting a myriad of human stories.

The DVD is presented from a superb new HD digital restoration of the film, and also includes Hanák's acclaimed short films Old Shatterhand Came to Us (Prisiel k nám Old Shatterhand, 1966) and Mass (Omša, 1967).

Release Date: February 2015
