Milestone Launches MOD Line4 May, 2011 By: Billy Gil
Cult film provider Milestone Film & Video is launching Milestone-On-Demand, a manufacture-on-demand service with plans to release catalog silent films, documentaries, foreign films and comedy shorts in the coming months.
The first three releases, coming June 7, are: A Day on the Grand Canal With the Emperor of China (1988), an exploration of the historical nature of a Chinese wall scroll; And Now Miguel (1953), a Mexican narrative film that later became an award-winning children’s novel, about a boy and his dream to participate in a local custom to visit the Sangre de Cristo Mountains with his father; and Dziga and His Brothers (2002), a black-and-white, 52-minute Russian documentary about the tumultuous lives of three brothers who were figures in Russian cinema.
The films will be available for $29.95 each, or for 20% off at www.milestonefilms.com.
