Torben Skjodt Jensen's elegant documentary is a collage of memories and reflections on one of cinema's greatest directors. Visually rich and densely layered, Carl Th. Dreyer - My Metier illuminates an artist too little understood and too important to overlook. Through interviews, historical writings, and rare archival footage, a portrait of Dreyer emerges: an austere perfectionist, yes, but also a passionate man possessing a genuine sense of humor. The Criterion Collection is proud to present this in-depth study of Dreyer's life and work for the first time on home video.

Supplements
  • Rare interview footage and archival material
  • Extensive biographical essay by Dreyer scholar Edvin Kau
  • A 22-page booklet, including a reprint of Dreyer's essay "Thoughts on My M├ętier"
