    Hey Guys,

    Just wanted to start a threat for DVDs released by The Cinema Guild and to update everyone on what is coming out and what is already out. After New Yorker Video went under, Cinema Guild launched its own Home Video line, moving over its titles that were previously available through New Yorker. Since then, we have begun distributing Project X titles (who also used to be through New Yorker).

    Upcoming:
    THE STATE I AM IN (July 28) First film for rising German Director Christian Petzold
    THE BETRAYAL (September 1) Academy Award Nominated 2009 Best Documentary Feature.

    Previous:
    THE UNFORESEEN - Robert Redford and Terrence Malick produced this ISA winning doc
    THE ORDER OF MYTHS - ISA winning doc about the origin of Mardi Gras
    YELLA - Christian Petzold's film inspired by Carnival Of Souls
    ALEXANDRA - Famed Russian director Alexander Sokurov's tale of a Grandmother on the warfront

    In addition all Peter Watkins' films from Project X and their entire back catalog is now back in print.

    We have many great film coming to DVD over the next year, and I hope to keep you all updated on what we have in store... from the latest documentary from Agnes Varda to the newest mumblecore work of Andrew Bujalski.

    I'm looking forward to your re-release of PRIVILEGE (the one Watkins I missed the first time around)...though I'd almost prefer a DVD of the forlorn faces of the Amazon marketplace/eBay vultures who are about to see their "OOP" New Yorker prices plummet.

    PRIVILEGE is already being shipped back out to stores, all the discs will be exactly the same as well (same stock). Amazon for some reason has yet to put the title back in stock, but it is available!

    Thanks, Peter. I did a quick "DVD price search" and ordered a copy from DVD Empire (It's nice to support the "little guys" when you can.)
