Few filmmakers can boast a body of work as outstanding, as beautiful or as challenging as that of Pedro Costa. This, his second feature, is an intriguing and voluptuous rethink of Jacques Tourneur’s spectral classic I Walked with a Zombie.
A remarkable, award-winning work of luminous beauty and power, Casa de Lava confirms the reputation of one of contemporary cinema’s foremost filmmakers.
This DVD is presented in a brand new HD transfer, created by director himself especially for this release and also features a new and exclusive interview with Pedro Costa shot at London’s Tate Modern, Pedro Costa’s Casa de Lava scrapbook, an interview with the films’ renowned cinematographer Emmanuel Machuel and a new booklet essay by author and critic Jonathan Rosenbaum.
Pedro Costa’s extraordinary 1994 film Casa de Lava is out on September 24th.
