    De Palma & De Niro: The Early Films (Limited Edition) In 1963, Robert De Niro stepped in front of a movie camera for the first time. The resulting film, a low-budget black and white comedy called "The Wedding Party," would take three years to complete, and another three years to be released, but it would also establish a hugely important working relationship for the aspiring actor. One of the filmmakers, long before he became synonymous with suspense thanks to "Carrie", "Dressed to Kill" and other classics, was Brian De Palma. He and De Niro would team up again in the next few years for two more comedies, both with a countercultural bent. "Greetings", the first to receive an X certificate in photo for De Palma & De Niro: The Early Films (Limited Edition)the United States, is a freewheeling satire focusing on a trio of twentysomething friends -- a conspiracy theorist, a filmmaker, and a voyeur played by De Niro -- as they try to avoid the Vietnam War draft. "Hi, Mom!", originally named "Son of Greetings," returns to De Niro's voyeur, now an aspiring maker of adult films, for another humorous glimpse at late-sixties society, this time turning its attentions to experimental theater, cinéma vérité, the African American experience, and the white middle classes. Brought together for the first time -- and each newly restored by Arrow Films especially for this release -- these three films offer a fascinating insight into the early careers of two of American cinema's major talents. New restoration from a 2K scan of "The Wedding Party" from the original film negative; new restoration from a 2K scan of "Greetings" and "Hi, Mom!" from original film materials.

    photo for A Dry White Season A Dry White Season (1989) With this bracing drama, made at the climax of the anti-apartheid movement, director Euzhan Palcy issued a devastating indictment of South Africa's racist government -- and made history in the process, becoming the first black woman to direct a Hollywood studio film. White schoolteacher Ben Du Toit (Donald Sutherland) lives in Johannesburg and remains blissfully incurious about the lives of his black countrymen until a wave of brutal repression comes crashing down on his gardener (Winston Ntshona), bringing Du Toit face-to-face with harsh political realities. Based on a celebrated novel by André Brink and rooted in the first-hand research the Martinican Palcy did in South Africa into the way black people lived under apartheid, "A Dry White Season" is unflinching in its depiction of violence and its chronicling of injustice, making for a galvanizing tribute to those willing to sacrifice everything to fight oppression.
