The official word on this release reads as follows:
Eureka Entertainment to release WESTFRONT 1918 & KAMERADSCHAFT (Two films by G.W. Pabst), two Anti-War films from master director Georg Wilhelm Pabst at the height of his powers, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 24 July 2017.
Georg Wilhelm Pabst (Pandora’s Box, Diary of a Lost Girl) made a flawless transition from silent to sound filmmaking with, Westfront 1918 and Kameradschaft, a pair of strongly anti-war titles (Pabst himself was a prisoner of war for the duration of WWI) that combined elements of Expressionism and New Objectivity to stunning effect.
In Westfront 1918, four infantrymen on the Western Front suffer the everyday hardships and insanity of trench warfare, and in Kameradschaft, a team of German miners risk their lives to rescue a team of French miners left trapped after an underground explosion.
Sharing many thematic elements, as well as key cast and crew (most notably cinematographer Fritz Arno Wagner, M, Nosferatu, Der müde Tod), Westfront 1918 and Kameradschaft represents a master director at the height of his powers, and The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present both these titles for the first time ever on Blu-ray in a special Dual Format edition.
The first 2000 units will be presented with a Limited Edition O-card.
