Kimstim

#1 Post by Ashirg » Fri Oct 21, 2011 10:17 pm

I'm surprised there is no topic for this independent label, maybe because they are bring distributed by others, first by Image, them by Kino and now by Zeitgeist.

Also they seem to have established a relationship with IFC and a number of films distributed theatrically by IFC or Sundance Selects are being released on DVD by Kimstim and Zeitgeist:
Daniel Monzón's Cell 211 (2009)
Corneliu Porumboiu's Police, Adjective (2009)
The Shock Doctrine (2009)
Strangers (2007)
Daddy Longlegs (2009) - 12/13/2011
Béla Tarr's The Man from London (2007) - 1/10/2012 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<!!!!!!!
Hong Sang-soo's Night and Day (2008) - 1/10/2012

As someone who missed the last half hour (which is when everything comes together) in Pusan, figuring I could see it back in the States, and then only saw mention of one sold-out showing at home (and *no* DVDs anywhere) - I thank you from the bottom of my heart. %^D

I loved the film, but the most exciting thing about that announcement for me is that Kimstim is finally moving into Blu.

The TV version and theatrical version are only a minute or two different due to the ending(s), so not clear, though I imagine it will be the theatrical version like the French Blu-ray, which was 25fps -- I assume they will pitch shift everything when converting to 24fps, given that it's a musical...

Excellent. I've been waiting for this. (Would have bought the French disc six months ago if it was English-friendly - I should just learn all the languages and then that wouldn't be a problem.)

Just got the blu-ray. The picture looks nice, but it has hard-printed subtitles. Is that typical for Kimstim?

How long was the turnaround for Jeannette or Kimstim's other films? :-k I just stumbled upon An Elephant Sitting Still and am looking forward to watching it.

I literally had to buy the disc to discover this, but the Blu-ray of An Elephant Sitting Still contains Hu Bo's short film Man in the Well, the US theatrical trailer, and an insert booklet with an essay by Aliza Ma, an interview with DP Fan Chao, and Hu Bo's short story.
