Beyond the Gates (R1) in September
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Beyond the Gates on 18th September 2007 priced at $27.98 SRP. John Hurt and Hugh Dancy star as a Catholic priest and an idealistic young teacher who find themselves caught in a literal and spiritual crisis during the 1994 Rwanda genocide. They have to choose whether to stay with the thousands of Tutsis seeking refuge in their school, or to flee to safety via the “whites-only” U. N. rescue operation. Shot on the same locations where the depicted massacre took place, the producers also included crew who themselves were survivors of the atrocities that took place in Rwanda.
The DVD bonus features include commentaries with the director, producer and writers and two featurettes - “The Making of ‘Shooting Dogs,” and “Filmmaker’s Diaries.” It is presented in English Dolby 5.1 and with English, French and Spanish subtitles.
