Anyone know when/if the Rouch films will come to home video?

Wonderful film. Wish we could get Loin du Vietnam instead, though, just 'cause I've never seen it.


Why not both? Far From Vietnam - December 10th.

For those who actually know about the film how come all of the press materials including DVD cover for Far From Vietnam omit Varda's name? Is this an edited release?

Most of Varda's material was cut from the final film. Details here.

Hey, whatever happened to those Jean Rouch films they announced a year and a half ago? That never happened, did it?

Icarus is releasing a new DCP of Chris Marker's Level Five this August.

Well, that completely trumps the 2-disc SD collection the BFI was promising a while back!

A long time coming, by the sounds of things, but eight of his remastered films will be out on DVD within a couple of months:

I hope by "DVD" they mean "blu ray".

Most Rouch is subbed on back channels, but these are important films for one of the most vital directors of the New Wave and deserve an English-subbed physical release of any kind. I kind of doubt they could sustain the production cost of a Blu-ray set, but I'd love to be proven wrong

Third, just wish these would be out before the end of our upcoming list.

Coming 14th of November. Four-disc set according to their Facebook page (no word on RRP yet, that I can see).

Nice trailer!

Should I just start with his Chronicle of a Summer? I wish those were Blu rays, but even then Icarus would charge a hefty sum for it they usually do

It's a good place to start as any especially since for now it is the most widely available film.

I'm glad to have these films, but I really wish there was some film specific extras because I'm already rather dumbfounded by the set. Without context The Mad Masters is barely coherent and not helped by the fact that the thickly accented narration is not subbed. It still comes across as a great film, but I would know I have one rather than just feel that way with a little more context (especially since it seems to have had quite the interesting history of censorship).

Wait, it should be in French. Is it in English, or are you saying it's in unsubbed French?

Rouch prepared some of the films in at least two language versions (sometimes reading the narration himself), so I guess they used the English here?

Jesus. Are the other films only offered in English too? My set will be here tomorrow. I know you see us on your Google Alert, Icarus: Why would you do this? This is unacceptable

Mammy Water is the only other one I've looked at, but it is in French with subtitles. I assumed this was a Chris Marker type of situation where Rouch preferred the film to be shown in the native tongue of the audience.
