Eureka Entertainment to release the internationally acclaimed masterpiece THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH, Fred Schepisi’s depiction of horrific racially-motivated crimes, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a definitive Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 19 August 2019, presented with a Limited Edition slipcase [2000 copies only]. One of the most important films in all of Australian cinema, and perhaps the key critical work of that country's internationally acclaimed film movement of the 1970s, The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith is nothing short of a masterpiece – a bracing and emotionally wrenching study of the effects of institutionalised racism and colonialism on a land's indigenous peoples, and an unflinching look at the repercussions of violence for both aggressors and victims. Based on the early 20th-century exploits of Jimmy Governor, The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith follows its title character, a half-Aboriginal, half-white young man attempting to make his way as a farmhand, but facing only prejudice and deception from society. When the parentage of his child is called into question and he is further robbed by his white employers, Jimmie's barely suppressed rage explodes, triggering a wave of violence that would shock a nation. Directed by Fred Schepisi (Six Degrees of Separation) from a Booker-nominated novel by Thomas Keneally (Schindler’s Arc – the book on which the film Schindler’s List was based), The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith stands alongside The Harder They Come and Sweet Sweetback's Baadassss Song as one of the most powerful 1970s cinema explorations of rebellion and uprising, and the costs that are paid on both sides. Called “the one great Australian film that I have seen” by Pauline Kael, The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith is a powerful experience. Features: LIMITED EDITION O-CARD (First 2000 copies only) - featuring newly commissioned artwork by Nathanael Marsh The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith – Australian Version [122 mins] – presented in 1080p on Blu-ray (with a progressive encode on the DVD), from a restoration completed by Umbrella Entertainment The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith – International Version [117 mins] – from a brand new restoration completed in 2019 from the original film elements (Blu-ray only) Uncompressed monaural soundtrack (on Blu-ray) Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing Brand new and exclusive audio commentary by film critic and writer Alexandra Heller-Nicholas (Australian Version) Audio commentary by director Fred Schepisi (Australian version) Interview with Fred Schepisi [39 mins] Celluloid Gypsies: Making “The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith” [36 mins] A conversation with director Fred Schepisi and cinematographer Ian Baker [64 mins] The Chant of Tom Lewis – interview with Tom E.

Often described as the Czech Méliès , visionary filmmaker Karel Zeman has been a profound influence on whole generations of film artists from Jan vankmajer to Tim Burton, the Quay Brothers to Terry Gilliam, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Wes Anderson. His ground-breaking innovations in the use of live-action and animation mark him as one of the great masters of 20th Century fantasy cinema, ranking alongside his more celebrated Western counterparts Willis O Brien and Ray Harryhausen. The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (Baron Prá il) is perhaps Zeman s most beloved achievement. Still regarded as the finest film adaptation of Gottfried August Bürger s outlandish tales of Baron Munchausen (made famous in his 1786 book), Zeman s wildly inventive and outrageously fun take on the incredible adventures of the bragging Baron come to life in a film celebrating the courage and imagination of dreamers and poets. With its mind-bending melding of live-action, animation and extraordinary matte work, Zeman has crafted a timeless work that continues to astonish.
