Description

Established by Martin Scorsese in 2007, the World Cinema Project expands the horizons of moviegoers everywhere. The mission of the WCP is to preserve and present marginalized and infrequently screened films from regions generally ill equipped to preserve their own cinema history. This collector’s set brings together six superb films from countries around the globe, including Senegal (Touki bouki), Mexico (Redes), India and Bangladesh (A River Called Titas), Turkey (Dry Summer), Morocco (Trances), and South Korea (The Housemaid). Each is a cinematic revelation, depicting a culture not often seen by outsiders on-screen.

  • New digital restorations of all six films, undertaken by the World Cinema Project in collaboration with the Cineteca di Bologna, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks on the Blu-rays
  • New introductions to the films by World Cinema Project founder Martin Scorsese
  • New interview programs featuring filmmakers Abderrahmane Sissako (on Touki bouki), Kumar Shahani (on A River Called Titas), Metin Erksan and Fatih Akın (on Dry Summer), and Bong Joon-ho (on The Housemaid)
  • New visual essay on Redes by filmmaker and critic Kent Jones
  • New program on Trances featuring interviews with director Ahmed El Maânouni, producer Izza Génini, musician Omar Sayed, and Scorsese
  • New English subtitle translations
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring a foreward by Jones and essays on the films by Richard Porton, Charles Ramirez Berg, Adrian Martin, Bilge Ebiri, Sally Shafto, and Kyung Hyun Kim
