From the much-respected English director of PUNISHMENT PARK, CULLODEN, and THE WAR GAME. This is a film about the Norwegian Expressionist painter of THE SCREAM (aka THE SHRIEK), one of the most famous paintings in the world. It was a huge recent theatrical box office hit in France upon its re-release. Famously described by Ingmar Bergman as "a work of genius", Peter Watkins' multi-faceted masterwork is more than just a biopic of the iconic Norwegian Expressionist painter, it is one of the best films ever made about the artistic process. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Watkins' original, extended 211-minute TV version of what is regarded by many as an extraordinary feat of filmmaking. SPECIAL FEATURES - New director-approved high-definition restoration of the longer TV version, Newly translated optional English subtitles, Optional SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing, 112-page book with a Peter Watkins self-interview, writing by Joseph Gomez, and a timeline of Munch's life.
