The western drama will arrive on Blu-ray in July, and you can pre-order the film here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cinema Guild is preparing ‘‘Jauja‘ for Blu-ray on July 21.
An astonishingly beautiful and gripping Western starring Viggo Mortensen, ‘Jauja’ (pronounced how-ha) begins in a remote outpost in Patagonia during the late 1800s. Captain Gunnar Dinesen has come from abroad with his fifteen year-old daughter to take an engineering job with the Argentine army. Being the only female in the area, Ingeborg creates quite a stir among the men. She falls in love with a young soldier, and one night they run away together. When Dinesen realizes what has happened, he decides to venture into enemy territory to find the young couple. Featuring a superb performance from Mortensen, ‘Jauja’ (the name suggests a fabled city of riches sought by European explorers) is the story of a man’s desperate search for his daughter, a solitary quest that takes him to a place beyond time, where the past vanishes and the future has no meaning.
Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: Untitled (Letter to Serra) (2011, 23 minutes), a film by Lisandro Alonso; Untitled (2009, 1 minute), a teaser by Lisandro Alonso for the BAFICI Film Festival; Press Conference with Lisandro Alonso and Viggo Mortensen at the 52nd New York Film Festival; Booklet featuring the essay, Into the Unknown, by film critic Quintin; and Theatrical Trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95. [Source]
