Robert M. Young's acclaimed 1977 drama will make a run for the Blu-ray border in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion has revealed '¡Alambrista!' will arrive on Blu-ray on April 17.
Vivid and spare where other films about illegal immigration might sentimentalize, Young’s take on the subject is equal parts intimate character study and gripping road movie, a political work that never loses sight of the complex man at its center.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p transfer, DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements include: New audio commentary featuring director Robert M. Young and coproducer Michael Hausman; New interview with actor Edward James Olmos; Children of the Fields, a 1973 short documentary by Young - Accompanied by a new interview with the director; Trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by film historian Charles Ramírez-Berg.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
