GME DVD Distribution - Upcoming Fall Releases



Gartenberg Media is pleased to announce our current slate of DVD releases for the fall academic season, now available for order. Carefully selected from boutique publishers, these DVDs represent works extending from classic silent films of the 1910's and 1920's through to cutting edge narratives and avant-garde films of the 1960's and 1970's.


Silent film director Albert Capellani has been a popular rediscovery of the Cinema Ritrovato festival over recent seasons. We are pleased to highlight a new publication of the Belgian Cinematek entitled To Dazzle the Eye and Stir the Heart - The Red Lantern, Nazimova and the Boxer Rebellion, featuring THE RED LANTERN (1919), starring Alla Nazimova, and accompanied by a comprehensive book of essays about the filmmaker, star, and period.


Also from the silent era, we are proud to feature a multi-disc set (published by Flicker Alley) entitled FRENCH MASTERWORKS: RUSSIAN ÉMIGRÉS IN PARIS 1923-1929, comprising five iconic films made by Albatros Productions, including films directed by Jacques Feyder Marcel L'Herbier, and Ivan Mosjoukine. Mosjoukine was also the featured actor in many of these Albatros films. This comprehensive DVD publication compliments, for teaching purposes, our previous release of Flicker Alley's multi-disk volume, LANDMARKS OF EARLY SOVIET FILM.


In recent years, GME has made a concerted effort to integrate key documentary films into our offerings for the academic market.  Also from the Cinematek, we offer the rarely-seen five-part SYMPHONIE PAYSANNE (PEASANT SYMPHONY), which Belgian filmmaker Henri Storck made between 1942 and 1944, at the height of the Second World War. GME's previous offerings of Storck's works comprise separate Blu-ray/DVD Combo Editions of his films entitled IMAGES D'OSTENDE and MISERE AU BORINAGE.


From Edition Filmmuseum, Munich, GME offers, for the first time, two distinct publications of key film works by Werner Schroeter, the hugely influential German avant-garde film, theater, and opera director: EIKA KATAPPA & DER TOD DER MARIA MALIBRAN, two melodramas about love and death, and DER BOMBERPILOT & NEL REGNO DI NAPOLI, two historic dramas set during WWII and in the immediately postwar era.


Finally, also from Flicker Alley, GME features THE CURTIS HARRINGTON SHORT FILM COLLECTION, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Edition comprising experimental shorts made by Los Angeles based filmmaker Curtis Harrington during the flowering of the American avant-garde in the immediately post WWII era, together with USHER (2002), his modern interpretation of the classic Edgar Allan Poe story.
