England: Pandora's Box theatrical re-release in June

Unread post by thomas_gladysz » Tue May 08, 2018 10:09 am

The British Film Institute (BFI) is giving Pandora’s Box (1929) a theatrical re-release in June. The version that will be shown is a 2K DCP of the 1997 Munich Film Museum restoration.

Pandora’s Box, which was directed by G.W. Pabst and stars Louise Brooks, will open at BFI Southbank and selected cinemas UK-wide on June 1. Additional dates and venues are to be announced. According to reports, the DCP comes with a score by Peer Raben, who in the past has worked with Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

Additional information, including a new coming attractions trailer and poster, may be found at http://www.louisebrookssociety.blogspot ... ar-in.html

I assume rights issues relating to the 2009 Deutsche Kinemathek restoration are the reason why this theatrical release is using a 21-year-old restoration (the one used for the Criterion DVD). I sincerely hope its BD release will not just be an upgrade of the 1997 restoration rather than the 2009 restoration.
