Hi there,
I know a few of you out there have contacted me over the years to ask about whether any of Werner Schroeter's films are available on DVD. I have some good news.

1. Filmgalerie 451 have released 'Palermo oder Wolfsburg' on DVD with English subtitles, and I believe they will also release Nuit de Chien after it finishes its theatrical release later this year. (I just watched Palermo and it is a pretty good transfer).

2. The Filmmuseum in Munich are working to bring out a larger series of Schroeter's films on DVD with English subtitles as they have for Alexander Kluge, however this looks like a huge job as they have to restore most of the prints and colour grading apparently is proving to be difficult.

If anyone else hears any more news, I'd love to hear from you.
