Ashes of Time Redux (R1) in March

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Ashes of Time Redux on 3rd March 2009 priced at $28.96 SRP. Ashes of Time, originally completed in 1994, was the first film from director Wong Kar Wai’s Jet Tone production company. The film received only a limited release and, in the years since, the existing prints and negatives had become damaged or destroyed. “To rectify this situation,” Wong Kar Wai states, “we decided to revisit this project and to create the definitive version.” He and his colleagues began the process by gathering as much existing material as could be found and restoring those elements, using advanced technology that had not existed in the early ‘90’s. He also collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma to create a new soundtrack, rearranging some of the original compositions by Freddie Chan and adding some original ones. Ashes of Time Redux is the result.

Features include:

  • 1.78:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
  • Cantonese and French DD5.1 Surround
  • English subtitles
  • “Born From the Ashes: The Making of Ashes of Time Redux”
  • Q & A with Wong Kar Wai
