Shindō, Rivette, Murnau and Griffith from Masters of Cinema in June/July

22 April 2013

Eureka Entertainment announced today via their twitter feeds (@eurekavideo & @mastersofcinema) the forthcoming releases in The Masters of Cinema series for the months of June and July 2013.

From landmark silent cinema and a thrilling rediscovery from a French legend to an early sound cinema classic and the finest art cinema of 1960s Japan, The Masters of Cinema Series remains as eclectic as ever in its June and July 2013 line-up – a five-release slate that includes big name directors D.W. Griffith, F.W. Murnau, Jacques Rivette, and Kaneto Shindō.

Producer of the Masters of Cinema Series, Andrew Utterson stated:

"In June, we will be releasing beautiful Blu-ray presentations of Kaneto Shindō's 1960s cult supernatural horror Kuroneko and haunting drama The Naked Island, alongside a definitive reissue of Tabu, F.W. Murnau's Oscar-winning collaboration with Robert Flaherty.

More cinematic treats follow in July with an immaculate reissue of D.W. Griffith's troubling but hugely significant silent epic The Birth of a Nation, and we welcome legendary French director and New Wave pioneer Jacques Rivette into the series for the very first time with the major rediscovery of his rarely seen Le Pont du Nord."

Managing Director of Eureka Entertainment, Ron Benson added:

"Across five standout releases, world and UK premières abound, with new restorations aplenty, we continue our quest to release the very finest in world cinema, using the best available materials and a meticulous attention to detail and design."

Full details of each disc will be announced nearer the release dates.
