Not sure if this has been discussed, but saw that a blu-ray of Beauty and the Beast by Juraj Herz was just released in Germany. Any chance for a SR release?

Just noticed Erik Blomberg's The White Reindeer is scheduled for Mayhem Film Festival next month...is this one of yours, Second Run? I had suggested it a couple of years ago, and it still feels like a good fit for you! :)

It has been picked up by a UK label, but not Second Run.

Since its not a Hollywood film that's already been released on Blu-ray in the states, I'm assuming its not Masters of Cinema either.

Interesting. I'm guessing Arrow or BFI then (or possibly MoC). Looking forward to it! :)

FWIW: If you're not willing to wait, the Finnish Blu-ray from the recent 4k restoration has English subtitles and can be had for 10€ from CDON.

On a related note, it would be fantastic if Second Run (or this other UK label) picked up Kavi's recent 4K restoration of Nyrki Tapiovaara's Stolen Death in its original director's cut. It famously made the cut for the BFI's list of the 360 best films made before 1980 and has surely been one of the most difficult films on that list to see,

I assumed Kavi would be releasing this on Blu-ray like they have done with their other recent restorations, but when I asked them they said they aren't, because they do not own the film. So hopefully BFI or someone else can pick it up.

Have Second Run considered releasing the works of Yuri Norstein? There's a Japanese Blu-Ray set with 2K restorations, but it would be fantastic if there could be a release here with more extras.

Eureka have announced The White Reindeer for 2019, so hopefully they'll put out Stolen Death as well
