Vanguard Cinema has announced plans to bring the indie film 'Rain in the Mountains' to HD DVD this February.
Directed by Joel Metlen and Christine Sullivan, 'Rain in the Mountains' is billed as an unusual comedy about a Native American man who, after failing to reconnect with the lost customs of his people, drops out of society and soon runs afoul of the authorities. Although well-received on the festival circuit, the film never received a domestic theatrical release, and will instead go direct-to-video, premiering on HD DVD day-and-date with the standard-def DVD on February 26, 2008.
Suggested retail for the HD DVD will be $29.95.
The release marks the second next-gen title from indie film distributor Vanguard, who first jumped into the high-def fray earlier this month, announcing plans for their debut HD DVD title, 'Channels.' (The distributor has not yet announced any plans to support Blu-ray.)
At press time, no tech specs or supplemental details were available for 'Rain in the Mountains,' aside from 1080p video. As always, we'll keep you posted.
In the meantime, you'll find preliminary disc details for 'Rain in the Mountains' linked from our HD DVD Release Schedule, where it's indexed under February 26, 2008.
