Also The Shop on Main Street is wonderful news.
It's out on region-free BD already, courtesy of Second Run. Is this a new restoration?
Yep, new 4K resto.

So as the member on the board, perhaps, most anxiously awaiting the Elo Havetta blu ray set, I'm guessing this set has yet to be released? I don't see it listed on Klapka yet.

“Anxiously”? Why? Slovak Blu-releases are almost always superb.

I just didn't know how to politely *bump* the topic, especially for our previous guest, klapka.sk, who had the lowdown on when the Havetta set is coming out.

According to Google the Slovak Film Institute is closed for the time being. Please be patient. I am sure the Havetta will arrive at some point.

Hi, yes Blu ray Elo Havetta collection we should have had it on sale, but there were some technical problems with release, which we could not predict :/
The same problems with release Blu ray The Shop on Main Street. So, I hope, both, it will be coming soon.
I'd rather not guess, when...

Besides the upcoming Elo Havetta Collection including three short films, it will also include a medium-length documentary about the director called Celebration of a Lonely Palm (2005) by Marko Škop.

The extras for The Shop on Main Street:

- short film They are Personally Responsible for Crimes Against Humanity! (1946) directed by Jan Kadár and
- newly commissioned interviews with Stanislava Přádná (film historian), Egon Gál (philosopher), Elmar Kloss (son of Elmar Klos) and Václav Macek (film historian)

Well, that's sold both of them!

(Although I suspect I'd have bought both regardless - I blind-buy pretty much everything from the Slovak Film Institute, as their technical and presentational standards are exceptionally high given that they presumably don't operate on a particularly huge budget.)
