Diary for My Children (Second Run) in September

Second Run DVD have announced the UK DVD release of Diary for My Children on 14th September 2009 priced at £12.99 RRP. From one of the world’s most accomplished women directors, Márta Mészáros’ film connects the personal with the political, by portraying the impact of individuals upon history and of historical forces upon individual lives.

Neither wholly autobiographical, nor entirely fictional, the film is a reflection on Mészáros’ own experiences under Stalinist rule in Hungary and of her obsession with her lost parents and fractured family ties.

It is the first in her renowned trilogy of ‘Diary’ films.

Features include:

  • New filmed interview with director Márta Mészáros (25mins)
  • New anamorphic transfer supervised by the director with restored picture and sound
  • New and improved subtitle translation
  • Booklet featuring new essay by author Catherine Portuges
  • Optimal quality dual layer disc
