Download the latest episode of Filmspotting, the popular Chicago-based weekly film review show, and around the 30 minute mark you'll hear a nice mention of Kartemquin's new triple DVD set, The Kartemquin Collection: Early Years, Volume 1-3, as well as their anticipation for the upcoming theatrical release of The Interrupters.
The Early Years set features six classic Kartemquin documentaries from the late 1960's, including the never-before-released Anonymous Artists of America, and the stunning natural childbirth film Marco, an official selection of the 1971 Venice and Chicago Film Festivals.
Check out trailers for Volume 1, Volume 2, and Volume 3, and pick up these essential slices of documentary cinema history from the Kartemquin Store, or from the Turner Classic Movies store, where they are grouped (along with Inquiring Nuns) under the category "American Life." You said it, TCM.
Thanks to our friends Facets for assisting with distribution of these DVDs.
