unseenArriving on DVD in October will be an extraordinary release from Image Entertainment called Unseen Cinema:  Early American Avant-Garde Film 1894-1941. Unseen Cinema is a seven disc set based on a 20 hour program that toured the world last year under the auspices of the Anthology Film Archive. Containing some 155 films, the set is organized thematically with each disc covering a specific topic or style. One, for example, explores surrealism, while another consists entirely of images of New York City.

The films have been compiled and assembled (often multiple prints of the same film were used to make sure the discs have the highest quality images available) by Bruce Posner, who curated the touring program, and
film historian David Shepard. This sort of release is why DVDs exists - what a goldmine it's going to be!
