The 1987 film from the Swiss artists is planned for Blu-ray in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Icarus Films is preparing to release 'The Way Things Go' on Blu-ray on April 14.
Inside a warehouse, Swiss artists Peter Fischli (b. 1952) and David Weiss (1946–2012) built an enormous, precarious structure 100 feet long made out of common household items—tea kettles, tires, old shoes, balloons, wooden ramps, etc. Then, with fire, water, gravity and chemistry, they created a spectacular chain reaction, a self-destructing performance of physical interactions, chemical reactions, and precisely crafted chaos worthy of Rube Goldberg or Alfred Hitchcock.
Called “the merry pranksters of contemporary art” (The New York Times), Fischli and Weiss collaborated for 33 years, drawing worldwide notoriety and praise for taking on big questions with humble materials and a tongue-in-cheek manner. THE WAY THINGS GO, now on Blu-ray for the first time, is their most acclaimed and beloved work.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $26.98.
