Yep, rights issues, unfortunately. But we felt the Wexner Center interview was so great, we couldn't pass it up.

This is most certainly a label to keep tabs on. Thanks too ,if you're listening, for the Claire Denis extras which involved a
triple dip for me. Looking forward to Sokurov and Rivette greatly.

Also certainly worth noting that Cinema Guild wrote on their twitter that they will indeed be (the only company) releasing In the City of Sylvia in its correct aspect ratio of 1.66:1.

Great news, nice to know the film will appear stateside in OAR. And more available Rivette is always a good thing.

I guess it wasn't a joke that Rivette would come to the US only after he made a short feature. Excited nonetheless, and they have Shirin? Why haven't I heard of this label before? Are they the same people that handled the theatrical release of 35 Shots of Rum and if so what are the chances of the Rivette also getting a theatrical?

Doh, just a short walk too. Where'd you get that information. The CG website doesn't seem to show theatrical listings.

Actually that date is incorrect as it already played on Nov 6th at the Eastman House.

Looks like Cristi Puiu's Aurora is coming out through Cinema Guild. This may not be on the top of my list of films they have released but yet it is still another worthy release. I'm consistently impressed with the fine caliber of films they put out.

Although I wish Cinema Guild would make the switch to blu-ray which I think their representative said was coming earlier in this thread but yet there has been no news since. With a little artwork overhaul and a blu-ray switch I would be buying a lot of things from this company: 35 Shots of Rum, Alexandra, 24 City, Eccentricities and on and on...

Hi Cinema Guild!
If you plan to release The Strange Case of Angelica on DVD, here´s an idea for an extra: "Manoel de Oliveira Absoludo", a 35 minute docu on Manoel de Oliveira, made during the shooting by Leon Cakoff. Read a bit more here (re: a festival showing of the film) in Portuguese.

Another possible extra would be Cakoff´s other MdO docu, "A Day in the Life of Manoel de Oliveira", featured (no English subtitles) on the bonus disc of the 22-title Oliveira DVD box set released by Lusomundo in Portugal.

Thanks!! We'll look into both of them.

ANGELICA will open in NY on December 29 and roll out to other cities in early 2011.

The Strange Case of Angelica is a fantastic film, even by de Oliveira's stringent standards. Don't miss it if it screens near you. And it's great to hear the DVD release is in good hands.

Aside from the Oliveira (which it goes without saying I'm eagerly anticipating), for me the Sokurov set is the most enticing future prospect out there at the moment. All of those films are just gold and so very difficult to get a hold of anywhere, with or without subs. There's much to be said about each but I'll keep it in reserve until more have had the opportunity to see them in solid transfers. Suffice it to be said for now that I look foward to finally placing Save and Protect into a proper dialogue with the other official-or-not Bovary adaptations.

Do you have any ideas yet as to possible features for this set or an approximate release date?

We're still finalizing the bonus features, but we can definitely say there'll be some interesting, unique stuff there. Plus, all three films will have brand new translations.

Release will be in late spring / early summer 2011.

Just wanted to make a public and enthusiastic "thank you!" to C.G. for releasing those Sokurovs. Especially the hallucinatory WHISPERING PAGES. This film had an extremely visceral effect on me: the hazy, anamorphic images left me feeling dizzy and disoriented, and I had to stagger out of the theater once or twice to get air. I don't know if that sounds like a recommendation to most people, but it's certainly an achievement. It's one of those films where I wonder if the effect can be replicated on home video, but since it's highly unlikely to be coming to a theater near you (unless you live in Paris), it's worth the experiment.

One small cavil, though: although these are some of Sokurov's earlier fiction (if that's the right word) features, he had been making films for over a decade before the first of them--so I don't know that they qualify as "early."

Anything like a release date on these?

Any chance that you're going to release Angelica on Blu-Ray as well? [-o< (I'd still buy the DVD if no Blu's planned)

We hope so! But it all depends on the theatrical release.
