My 20th Century
(Az én XX. századom)
A film by Ildikó Enyedi
Hungary, 1988

"My 20th Century is a number of wondrous things... a bracing combination of wit, invention, common sense and lunacy. It's a gravely comic meditation on civilization at the turn of this century" Vincent Canby, New York Times

Ildikó Enyedi’s acclaimed film tells the tale of identical
twins Dóra and Lili, born in Budapest at the very moment
that Edison’s wondrous electric light-bulb is unveiled
to the world. Celebrating the enthralling technological marvels as well as the political and sexual upheavals of the time, this film reclaims the birth of the twentieth century as a miraculous moment to be alive.

Available on both Blu-ray and DVD formats, this dazzling film is
presented from a brand new HD restoration of the film by the Hungarian Digital Archive and Film Institute, supervised by director of photography Tibor Máthé and director Ildikó Enyedi.

Electra, My Love
(Szerelmem, Elektra)
A film by Miklós Jancsó
Hungary, 1974

"Jancsó's enthralling reinvention of the Elektra myth as a fable of permanent revolution... It's mesmerising"
Tony Rayns, Time Out Film Guide

Revolutionary in form as well as content, Electra, My Love is one of the great Miklós Jancsó's finest works. Shot in twelve beautiful, intricately choreographed long takes by cinematographer János Kende, and expressing political ideas that were forbidden in 1970s Hungary, it is a searing exposé of oppression and the abuse of power.

Available on both Blu-ray and DVD formats, Electra, My Love is presented from a brand new 2K digital restoration created from original materials by the Hungarian National Digital Archive and Film Institute, supervised by the film’s cinematographer János Kende.

(Tři oříšky pro Popelku)
A film by Václav Vorlíček
Czechoslovakia/East Germany, 1973

"A delightfully unconventional retelling of the classic story... a charming movie whose winning unpredictability succeeds in revitalizing an overly familiar story"
Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog

Delightful and unconventional, Three Wishes for Cinderella places the familiar fairy tale into a wintry setting with down-to-earth characters and a feisty and rebellious Cinderella.

Three Wishes for Cinderella is presented from a new high-definition transfer of the brand new 4k restoration of the film from original materials and includes exclusive and expansive filmed appreciation by writer, editor and film historian Michael Brooke - plus a booklet featuring a new essay on the film by fantasy film critic and historian Tim Lucas.
