Luminous Procuress
A film by Steven Arnold
USA, 1971

Blu-ray Special Edition

“The most scandalous American avant-garde movie of its time. It may also have been the most influential”
Jim Hoberman, New York Times

The only feature film by artist, mystic and polymath Steven Arnold, Luminous Procuress film celebrates gender-fluidity and pan-sexuality in a voyeuristic phantasmagorical journey towards spiritual ecstasy.

Luminous Procuress was an underground sensation upon release but disappeared from circulation for many years. Now fully restored in all its sensuous glory, Luminous Procuress’ subversive delights are ready to be discovered anew.

(Ďáblova past)
A film by František Vláčil
Czechoslovakia, 1961

“From its magnificent opening shot to its breathtaking climax, this gripping account of free will at odds with religious dogma ranks among Vláčil’s finest work”
Film Society of Lincoln Center

The first film in Vlácil’s trilogy of visionary historical epics, The Devil’s Trap prefigures his legendary masterpiece Marketa Lazarová. With atmospheric imagery and evocative use of sound, the film depicts a cruel but credible world torn between superstition and science.

(Kočár do Vídně)
A film by Karel Kachyňa

Blu-ray Special Edition

“A road movie unlike any other... an absolutely devastating indictment of the Czech nation after the Second World War... it may be one of the best and most important works of art the country has ever produced” Celluloid Paradiso

Karel Kachyňa’s long-supressed, powerful and often harrowing film is a fearless moral examination of the complexities of war, and explores the fine line between justice and vengeance.

Presented from a glorious new 4K restoration, our world premiere Blu-ray edition also includes Kachyňa’s rediscovered 1949 graduation film, It's Not Always Cloudy (Není stále zamračeno), a feature-length, semi-documentary co-directed by Vojtěch Jasný; plus a new Projection Booth audio commentary... and more.
