La nouvelle direction de 13 Productions à Paris vient de sortir une version DCP plus courte de La Commune pour le cinéma commercial. C’est la version que j’ai spécialement produite en 2005. Ce DCP est disponible soit en Français seul, soit avec ajout de sous-titres en Anglais. Veuillez nous faire connaitre ce que vous souhaitez et nous vous mettrons en relation soit avec 13 Productions pour la version cinema de 3 heures 30 minutes, soit avec l’association Rebond for La Commune (Patrick Watkins) pour des projections-débats de la version TV d’origine de 5 heures 45 minutes.
LA COMMUNE The new management of 13 Productions in Paris has just released a shorter (3 hrs 30 mins) DCP version of La Commune for commercial cinema release. This is the specially edited version I produced in 2005. This DCP is available either with French dialogue only, or with added English subtitles. Please let us know your requirements, and we will connect you either with 13 Productions for commercial cinema screenings of the DCP version, or with the association Rebond for La Commune (Patrick Watkins) for non-commercial discussion showings of the original 5 hrs 45 mins TV version.
Please note that my spouse Vida Urbonavičius is now helping me with the administration of my films and their availability and will be participating in the communication process.
Since many of the sections showing the availability of my films had become completely out-of-date, we decided to remove them entirely. We ask you to please contact us directly via the Contact Page regarding access to my work for theatrical or non-theatrical screenings.
Depending on your request, we will either deal directly with the films to which I have retained the rights, or ask you to contact the relevant distributor or rights-holder, or pass on your request to Oliver Groom if it concerns Edvard Munch, or to Patrick Watkins or 13 Productions in Paris, depending on which version of La Commune you wish to screen (see side-panel).
I will be revising this website later in the year (2022), including with more detailed information on the nature and possible effects of the Monoform, and on the repression of my work. Please note that the detailed comments on each of my films, though written approximately twenty years ago, remain entirely valid today, and can be found in ‘Films’ in the top tool bar.
Click for several articles on the Media Crisis, by myself and other authors. Included is
THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, which I wrote in 2018, and will revise and enlarge upon in the new version of the website.
Kindly note that I am no longer able to give interviews, either verbally or in writing.
I sincerely appreciate your understanding and support!Peter Watkins,
