I understand this will be released as a double-feature by HVE on June 24, but I can't link to Facets.org for some reason, where it's listed for preorder already:
| Two award-winning films from French filmmakers. The satire Black and White in Color (Jean-Jacques Annaud, 1976, 90 mins.), follows a group of French colonists in Africa who learn of their country's involvement in WWI a few months late and enlist the native population to attack a nearby German outpost. Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 1976. The Sky Above, The Mud Below (Pierre-Dominique Gaisseau, 1961, 92 mins.), traces a 1959 expedition into the uncharted jungles of Dutch New Guinea by an international team of explorers. Witness the clock of history being turned back 7,000 years in this incredible glimpse into primitive societies. Winner of the Best Documentary Oscar in 1961. |
Now for Name of the Rose and Hothead!
