“A landscape of hope, truly moving, timely and important!”
—Christof Mauch, Director, Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society
Kino Lorber is proud to announce the DVD and TVOD release of The Land of Azaba, directed by Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Greta Schiller (Before Stonewall, Paris Was a Woman). Produced by Jezebel Productions, and featuring music by Philip Glass, The Land of Azaba
is notable as the first feature-length documentary treatment of the
subject of ecological restoration. The film was selected for the DOC
Spain and Cinema & Climate Change sections of the 65th Valladolid
International Film Festival, and was an Official Selection of the 2020
Mystic Film Festival, where it won the Award for Best Cinematography.
Taking a message of hope, The Land of Azaba
presents an alternative to the negative tone of many discussions around
ecology, focusing instead on the steps that can still be taken to
restore balance to the planet's ecosystems.
The Land of Azaba will be
released on DVD June 8, 2021, with a SRP of $19.95. Bonus features
include a deleted scene, and the trailer. It will also be available
digitally on all major TVOD platforms including Kino Now beginning June 8.
Addressing climate change is the existential question of our time,
but climate change and bio-diversity loss are two sides to the same
coin. The Land of Azaba immerses
the viewer in a magical world where humans and wildlife work together to
restore the largest remaining tract of wild nature in western Europe.
The survival of many rare and endangered species is at stake.
We’re at risk of being overwhelmed by ecological doomsday news. We
need stories of hope and success to overcome despair and restore hope.
Ecological Restoration is one way, as portrayed in the documentary film The Land of Azaba. Humanity can turn back the tide of mass extinction and restore the planet’s ecological balance.
The Land of Azaba is produced, directed, and edited by Greta Schiller, and co-produced by Andrea Weiss. For more information on the DVD and TVOD release, please contact Matt Barry at email@example.com, or visit the Official Website.
