The Immortal Story

It's a rarely seen, lost classic from the genius that was Orson Welles and now, as part of the ongoing celebrations marking the centenary of the maverick multi-hyphenate, The Immortal Story is making its first ever appearance on Blu-ray anywhere in the world.

The Immortal Story, Welles' penultimate film as a director, a film described as a "sumptuous experience" (Time Out) has now been given a sumptuous, high definition transfer courtesy of Mr Bongo Films, with the Blu-ray due on 2 November 2015 marking its first HD release in any territory.

Welles' second-to-last feature as a director, The Immortal Story is an adaptation of a book by Danish author Isak Dinesen and stars Jeanne Moreau.

The year is 1860 in the Portuguese colony of Macao, Mr. Clay (Welles) is an aging, rich merchant, who is the subject of town gossip.

Mr. Clay has no wife and no heir to his fortune and resolves to make the story true...Levinsky approaches Virginie Ducrot (Moreau), another clerk's mistress, and strikes a bargain for 300 guineas.

Fresh Dressed

The birth and history of hip hop has been well documented, from the music, block parties and digging in the crates for breaks to graffiti and breakdancing, all proving rich subjects for documentaries. But the accompanying fashion, the groundbreaking styles sported by early artists and fans of the genre, whose rush to find new threads, kicks and accessories went beyond Adidas sneakers and tracksuits to customised, graffiti jackets, Kangol hats and far, far beyond, hasn't been given the attention it deserves...Until now.

Fly feature documentary Fresh Dressed charts the innovative, weird and wonderful styles worn by hip-hop artists, rappers and crews from the inception of the movement through to the multi-million dollar fashion empires built by current megastars such as Sean "Puffy" Combs.

With funky, fat-laced Adidas, Kangol hats, and Cazal shades, a totally original look was born - Fresh - and it came from the black and brown side of town where another cultural force was revving up in the streets to take the world by storm. Hip-hop, and its aspirational relationship to fashion, would become such a force on the market that Tommy Hilfiger, in an effort to associate their brand with the cultural swell, would drive through the streets and hand out free clothing to kids on the corner.

As Kanye West - one of the many rap icons interviewed for Sacha Jenkins' Fresh Dressed - says: "Being fresh is more important than having money. The entire time I grew up, I only wanted money so I could be fresh."

Sean "Puffy" Combs, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nas and many more all wax lyrical on the importance of being Fresh Dressed in this fascinating film, due in cinemas on 30 October 2015, courtesy of Dogwoof, following its London Film Festival Premiere. The film will then make its DVD bow on 9 November 2015.
