Jeff Lambert of the NFPF just discussed this last week on The Cinephiliacs podcast. It's definitely still coming, although he didn't mention how far along it was or when it would be released.

I'd almost given up on it. It was announced for 2014, and I recall reading then that the production work on the set was just about done and it would be released soon. I wonder if they encountered some major late-stage hitch.

I just received these. The Breer set is a new Re:Voir edition, which oddly enough is not yet listed on their own site, and comes with a substantial, colour, 164 page book entirely in English. Maybe the delay with Re:Voir's own edition is related to publishing the French-language equivalent. I guess this will be the first Re:Voir edition I've seen where the book(let) is not bilingual, so future purchasers may need to watch out that they're ordering the correct language edition from wherever (the CNC is also credited as a collaborator, so this may be available from Canada too).

The Len Lye set is a very handsome production and promises plenty of new restorations, though I haven't had a chance to look at any of them yet. It seems to be an exclusively New Zealand edition, even to the extent of the obligatory ugly censorship label being printed on the front cover.

All Souls Carnival seems like the major revelation here. A near epic at 12 minutes, it was until recently thought lost (and five minutes are apparently still missing). Imagine The Dante Quartet scored by, say, Igor Stravinsky.

This thread bump reminds me that - weirdly - this Breer set still hasn't appeared from Re:Voir itself.

But they have put out a compilation of Suzan Pitt's trippy, erotic animation. Asparagus has to be seen to be believed.

There's a trailer available to view on their blog: http://blog.re-voir.com/

A new Jonas Mekas epic, He Stands in the Desert Counting the Seconds of His Life, also seems to have slipped out last year.

I can't get it to play. And other doodles like this one play fine for me so I don't think it's a browser or plug-in issue.

The pre-order for the second Oskar Fischinger DVD is up and looks terrific!

Yes, it's very good. Bare bones transfer of a 16mm print, but - as usual with Re:Voir - there's a substantial booklet included.

It was very nice to see several of these films for the first time (particularly Swiss Trip and the 1920s-30s experiments, some of which I gather made their way into Raumlichtkunst) though I feel the need to warn everyone that there are "CVM" watermarks all over this thing. Generally just toward the end of the films but still...

Hmmm....it is unclear why you'd write that, that there are "watermarks all over this thing" as that's not accurate. The watermark is on the LAST SHOT of each film (with one short exception in the bonus features). Yes, a very small one in the corner of the LAST shot. Not "all over" the films which is what you seem to be implying. Using a watermark is a very common practice today.

The 1920s-30s experiments are not in Raumlichtkunst, they have nothing to do with it.

On YouTube and other streaming sites, perhaps; not on physical home-video media from the US and Europe. I thank CVM for releasing these films in splendid editions (I purchased them myself), and don't fault them for making this (perhaps necessary) decision, but I thought I should clarify that it's not a standard one.
