GME DVD Distribution Academic Recap - Summer 2014


As this summer approaches, GME is pleased to once again provide a recap of the DVD and Blu-ray publications that we've offered over the past academic year for North American institutional sales.  These publications represent moving-image works spanning the course of film history, from early cinema through to the contemporary avant-garde, from Lon Chaney to Heinz Emigholz.


This past year we've expanded our catalog of silent films titles with the Hardcover Book & PAL-DVD publication To Dazzle the Eye and Stir the Heart - The Red Lantern, Nazimova and the Boxer Rebellion, featuring THE RED LANTERN (1919), starring Alla Nazimova; also the Blu-ray edition of  THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (1923) starring Lon Chaney (the original 'Man of a Thousand Faces').  Also from the silent era we present the 5-DVD collection  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.  Our latest documentary offering is the rarely-seen, five-part SYMPHONIE PAYSANNE (PEASANT SYMPHONY), presenting the films of the great Belgian documentarian Henri Storck' in a  Blu-ray/PAL-DVD Combo Edition.  Storck's classic films IMAGES D'OSTENDE and MISERE AU BORINAGE, are also available from GME.


We've also continued to expand our representation of cutting-edge, historic and contemporary avant-garde filmmakers, with DVD editions encompassing the full range of experimental film practices,.  These publications include THE CURTIS HARRINGTON SHORT FILM COLLECTION, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Edition of experimental shorts made by the late, Los Angeles-based filmmaker; Werner Schroeter's EIKA KATAPPA & DER TOD DER MARIA MALIBRAN, and DER BOMBERPILOT & NEL REGNO DI NAPOLI, two volumes on PAL-DVD of key film works by the hugely influential German avant-garde film, theater, and opera director; and two PAL-DVD volumes of HEINZ EMIGHOLZ: THE FORMATIVE YEARS [I] & [II], featuring the early films of the internationally-acclaimed German experimental filmmaker whose collected body of work explores urban and rural landscapes in unique, architectonic fashion.  Lastly, we are proud to offer  JONAS MEKAS: THE MAJOR WORKS, a 7-Disc DVD Box Set of key films created by the most significant force behind the evolution and promotion of the American Avant-Garde film movement as well as one of its most prolific independent filmmakers and pre-eminent cinema poets.


Collectively, the work of these filmmakers are represented in high quality DVD and Blu-ray editions from international publishers that GME has carefully searched worldwide to represent. For this past year's releases, they comprise Arsenal Experimental and Filmgalerie 451 (Germany), Cinematek (Belgium), Edition Filmmuseum, Munich (Germany), Flicker Alley (United States), and Re:Voir, Potemkine & Agnès B. (France).
