Mysterious Object at NoonMysterious Object at Noon

Edition Filmmuseum 98

With his debut feature, Mysterious Object at Noon, acclaimed Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul expertly blended cinematic fact and fiction in a manner that fifteen years later continues to defy both categorization and comparison. A low-fi "genre bender," independently produced on a shoestring and subsequently endangered by neglect, Mysterious Object at Noon has now been painstakingly restored by the Austrian Film Museum and the Film Foundation from the best surviving elements. This DVD release also includes three short works, selected by the director himself, plus the Austrian Film Museum's now out-of-print monograph on Apichatpong Weerasethakul from 2009 as an exclusive DVD-ROM feature.

The Salvation HuntersThe Salvation Hunters

Edition Filmmuseum 105

Before making (sound) film history with The Blue Angel, Viennese-born filmmaker Josef von Sternberg directed a series of thematically and stylistically daring silent films. This DVD presents the first and last of his surviving silents, digitally restored from archival 35mm elements and supplemented by a new video essay by film historian Janet Bergstrom. The Salvation Hunters, von Sternberg's self-financed, socially conscious directorial debut, won praise from Charles Chaplin, among others, and includes a new score by award-winning Austrian composer Siegfried Friedrich. The sole extant fragment of The Case of Lena Smith brings the director's youthful memories of fin de siècle Vienna vividly to life.
