Nick Broomfield: Documenting Icons Collection in March

Metrodome have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Nick Broomfield: Documenting Icons for 7th March 2005 priced at £49.99. Long before Michael Moore became a household name and proved that documentaries could rival the best fictional output Hollywood had to offer, the UK's very own Nick Broomfield was already blazing a pioneering trail, directing a series of interesting, informative, extremely funny and highly entertaining documentary films. Often courting controversy along the way, with his distinctive and inimitable style Broomfield almost single-handedly established the documentary as an acceptable and popular form of mainstream entertainment.

Now Metrodome is proud to present the six-film DVD boxed set, Nick Broomfield: Documenting Icons, featuring some of the highlights of Nick Broomfield's astonishing and varied career, including the BAFTA Award winning Soldier Girls, Chicken Ranch, The Leader, Tracking Down Maggie, Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam and Fetishes. Put together under the supervision of Nick Broomfield himself, this unique collection comes laden with exclusive extra material, including previously unseen new and archival footage from Nick's own archive. The version of Fetishes contained in the boxed set is the director's cut containing reinstated footage newly passed by the BBFC. Fetishes will also be released individually as a Special Edition DVD on 7th March 2005, featuring an additional 47 minutes of exclusive extra material newly edited by Nick Broomfield especially for the release.

The six-disc special edition DVD boxed set includes:

  • History reel
  • Introductions to all six films by Nick Broomfield
  • Audio commentary on Chicken Ranch and The Leader
  • Trailer reel
  • Fetishes – additional scenes
  • Chicken Ranch – additional interview with Connie
  • Soldier Girls – additional footage
  • Tracking Down Maggie – additional archive footage
  • The Leader – additional archive footage
