Win Mississippi Burning on Blu-ray
‘More than any other film I’ve seen, this one gets inside the passion of race relations in America’ **** Roger Ebert
Based on one of the most notorious race related murder cases in US history, Alan Parker’s (The Commitments), multi award winning Mississippi Burning gets its first ever UK Blu-ray release courtesy of Second Sight.
This powerful film stars Hollywood heavyweights Gene Hackman (The French Connection), Willem Dafoe (Platoon) and Frances McDormand (Fargo), and arrives in a newly restored edition with a slew of brand new special features on 14 September 2015.
When three civil rights activists go missing deep in Ku Klux Klan territory, the FBI are called in to investigate. Agents Ward (Dafoe) and Anderson (Hackman) are poles apart in their approach, one methodical and by the book, the other more cynical with age and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Facing an uncooperative local police force and a community too afraid to talk, their investigation sparks repercussions as they edge even closer to the truth.
Amongst its many accolades Mississippi Burning won an Oscar and was nominated for a further six Academy Awards, along with three BAFTA wins and Gene Hackman garnered the best actor award at Berlin International Film Festival.
Bonus features include:
- ‘Through the Storm’ – An interview with director Alan Parker
- ‘Remembering Mississippi Burning’ – An interview with actor Willem Dafoe
- ‘Under Siege’ – An interview with writer Chris Gerolma
- Audio Commentary with Alan Parker
