Release date: 7th August

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1978 Cannes Film Festival, Ermanno Olmi’s The Tree of the Wooden Clogs is an epic portrait of peasant life in late nineteenth century Italy.

Focussing on four families working and living on the farm of a landowner in the Bergamo region of northern Italy, Olmi presents a year in their lives, charting their daily activities and the natural flow of existence: birth, marriage, death, and the trials and tribulations in between.

Shot on an abandoned farmhouse in Bergamo, The Tree of Wooden Clogs utilised locals of the region to its characters and had them speak in their Bergamasque dialect. The end results are truly remarkable, the apotheosis of Italian cinema’s neo-realism movement.

Don't worry, I'm sure Criterion's edition will be out in the UK in September

Encode?
Of course not. (usually Arrow's is better).
Maybe you meant transfer?

I would be curious to know if Arrow would correct the tealing, a color stamp now of Ritrovata.
Hadn't they corrected some colors in another film?

I very much doubt the colour timing would be changed. Arrow have only done that for their big ticket Argento releases.

I was wondering if anyone has seen Arrow's release yet? Is the color timing
the same as Criterion's?
