Goltzius and the Pelican Company Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

From Peter Greenaway (Nightwatching, The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover), one of the most inventive, ambitious and controversial film-makers of our time, comes a sumptuous period drama told in explicit detail, exploring the life of celebrated 16th century Dutch printer and engraver of erotic prints Hendrik Goltzius. Attempting to seduce the Margrave of Alsace (F. Murray Abraham, Amadeus, Homeland) into paying for a printing press to make and publish his erotic imagery, Goltzius promises the Margrave a spectacular illustration of the Old Testament s biblical... stories: erotic takes on figures such as Adam and Eve, Lot and his daughters, Samson & Delilah and John the Baptist & Salome. To tempt the Margrave further, Goltzius and his printing company offer to perform dramatisations of these erotic tales for his court... Recently awarded Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema at the 2014 BAFTA s, Peter Greenaway returns to the cinematic arena of The Draughtsman s Contract with GOLTZIUS AND THE PELICAN COMPANY, a film that showcases Greenaway s hallmarks of breath-taking visual framing and a fascination with sex and death.

Peter Greenaway writes and directs this biographical drama exploring the life and work of 16th-century Dutch printer and engraver Hendrik Goltzius. Ramsey Nasr stars as the artist famous for the self-portrait of his right hand as well as his erotic prints of Adam and Eve. In exchange for his purchase of a printing press to further Goltzius's career, the Margrave of Alsace demands that he perform his erotic tales of the Biblical couple on the stage for his entertainment.
