Product Description

CINEMA16: AMERICAN SHORT FILMS INCLUDES DIRECTORS LUCAS, BURTON, VAN SANT TO BE RELEASED ON DVD IN MAY 2006

The critically acclaimed Cinema16 series continues with American Short Films, which will be released on DVD in the UK in May 2006. Amongst the A-list directors confirmed are George Lucas, Tim Burton, Alexander Payne, Todd Solondz, Gus van Sant and DA Pennebaker.

The 16 films include: Gus Van Sant's 1982 adaptation of a William S. Burroughs short story, The Discipline of DE; Tim Burton’s early stop motion animated classic Vincent; George Lucas’ USC short Freiheit; Alexander Payne’s previously unreleased UCLA graduation short Carmen; D.A. Pennebaker’s Duke Ellington scored Daybreak Express; Todd Solondz’ NYU short Feelings; along with Oscar winner The Lunch Date by Adam Davidson, Stefan Nadelman’s multi-award winning documentary Terminal Bar, Joe Nussbaum’s cult classic George Lucas in Love, and this year’s Sundance winner The Wraith of Cobble Hill by Adam Parrish King.

Cinema16 celebrates the short film by showcasing some of the best classic and award winning shorts on DVD accompanied by audio commentaries by their directors. The release of Cinema16: American Short Films follows the success of two previous DVD releases in the series – Cinema16: British Short Films and Cinema16: European Short Films – which include the work of Mike Leigh, Sir Ridley Scott, Lars von Trier, Stephen Daldry, Lynne Ramsay, Christopher Nolan, Jean-Luc Godard, Patrice Leconte, Tom Tykwer, Nanni Moretti, Lukas Moodysson and Jan Svankmajer amongst others. Both collections have grown through word of mouth to become major independent hits both critically and commercially, and owing to popular demand, will be re-released alongside the new American Short Films DVD.

From the Contributor

Cinema16 is a filmmaker driven initiative, produced by Luke Morris, who won the European Film Award and a BAFTA nomination for his first short Je t’aime John Wayne, and was BAFTA nominated again this year, with Toby MacDonald, for Heavy Metal Drummer.

Aside from providing short films with a much needed platform Cinema16 gives filmmakers and movie-lovers access to some great films that would otherwise be near impossible to see. With over three and a half hours of films Cinema16 is essential viewing for anyone with an interest in the moving image.

I've been searching for some of these films for years! This set would be worth the money if it only contained Maya Deren's landmark "Meshes Of The Afternoon"; but you also get a Warhol screen test, Tim Burton's darkly funny "Vincent", the eerie and beautiful "Necrology" and much more. Highly recommended.

I simply enjoy this set of short films ushering a viewer through the latest sixty years of rapid changes New York and US society experienced.

To me, some films are more interesting (Five Feet High and Rising, Daybreak Express, Meshes of the Afternoon), some less-but this DVD is a classic epochal work for generations oncoming.

There are a wide range of shorts in this collection and the best of them are nothing less than brilliant. The works by Peter Sollent and DA Pannebaker are just superb. Almost all of the shorts are thought-provoking and well executed, and some of them are quite moving.
