OPENS FRIDAY, JUNE 12

PIONEERS OF QUEER CINEMA SERIES

AVAILABLE STARTING JUNE 12 FOR PRIDE MONTH: New Restorations of 3 "Way Ahead of Their Times" Classics

Danish film master Carl Theodor Dreyer's Michael is a mature and visually elegant period romance decades ahead of its time. Michael takes its place alongside Dreyer's better known masterpieces as an unusually sensitive and decorous work of art and is one of the earliest and most compassionate overtly gay-themed films in movie history. Collaborating with famed German cinematographers Karl Freund (Metropolis, The Last Laugh) and Rudolph Maté (Passion of Joan of Arc, DOA) Michael offers the first fully realized example of Dreyer's emotionally precise, visually extravagant style that would be perfected in his subsequent masterworks such as Joan of Arc and Ordet.

"Michael is perhaps Dreyer's first masterpiece, assured, reticent, and radiant." - Tom Milne, The Films of Carl Dreyer
