    NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 5, 2014 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the DVD release ofFAUST, the latest film from internationally-acclaimed, award-winning Russian filmmaker Alexander Sokurov, creator of such renowned masterworks as The Sun and the groundbreaking Russian Ark.

    Hailed by critics world-wide, FAUST was a New York Times Critic's Pick and won the Golden Lion at the 2011 Venice International Film Festival, as well as receiving numerous other awards and nominations from film festivals around the world (including a nomination for Best Film at the London Film Festival).

    [​IMG]Now, following its nationwide theatrical release, this acclaimed and much-anticipated film from one of the masters of contemporary world cinema will be released on DVD from Kino Lorber on June 24th, with a SRP of $29.95.

    Based upon the tragedy by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, FAUST tells the timeless tale of a man who sells his soul to the devil, with Sokurov's distinctive, elaborate visual style bringing a new approach to this classic story.

    FAUST continues the tradition of epic, visually-sumptuous films that Alexander Sokurov has brought to worldwide audiences over the course of his illustrious career, which has earned him numerous awards at international film festivals for his prolific and acclaimed body[​IMG] of work.

    SYNOPSIS:
    Winner of the 2011 Venice International Film Festival's Golden Lion, FAUST is acclaimed director Alexander Sokurov's (Russian Ark)hallucinatory re-imagining of Goethe's masterpiece set in the early 19th century.

    Faust (Johannes Zeiler) is a man in search of the ideals of the Enlightenment, but becomes obsessed with the lovely Margarete (Isola Dychauk) and eventually sells his soul to the Devil (Anton Adasinsky) also known as the Moneylender, so he may possess her. Comic, cosmic, painterly, and stunningly beautiful scenes abound as the Devil takes Faust on a strange, unforgettable journey that ends in Hell itself.

    Using elaborate camera movements, a dense soundscape, intricate production design and spectacular locations, FAUST conjures up a unique and phantasmagoric vision of the Faustian legend.

    Bought the Blu-ray nearly two years ago from the UK. But of course, Kino is doing a great service for Region 1 DVD customers who do not have the privilege of owning a region-free player. :)

    The Blu-ray version will be out September 16th, and the Amazon pre-order is here.

    I don't know why Kino did not make the announcement at the same time as the DVD, because this has been their product page for some time now:
