PHILADELPHIA, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Invincible Pictures announces plans today to release an uncut version of the provocative movie A SERBIAN FILM digitally on FlixFling and on limited edition DVD. This marks the film's first official uncut release in North America.
A SERBIAN FILM, which has faced scrutiny and criticism worldwide, was released by Invincible in theaters, digitally and on DVD/Blu-ray last year. All previously released versions by Invincible have been cut due to legal challenges surrounding the film.
The most serious of which were charges brought against Angel Sala, Director of Spain's Sitges Film Festival. Sala was charged with exhibition of child pornography after a screening of A SERBIAN FILM during the 2010 festival. All charges against Sala were dropped in February.
Previous to these allegations, Invincible had planned to release the film uncut, but decided to instead release a cut version until an outcome in this case had been determined.
"Of course we would have preferred an uncut release last year," says Invincible Pictures' CEO Tom Ashley. "Unfortunately, the charges brought against Mr. Sala were something we had to seriously factor into that release. Now that those charges have been dropped, we can bring A SERBIAN FILM to its fans as its director had intended."
The uncut version of A SERBIAN FILM will be available for purchase on FlixFling starting May 1st. The limited edition DVD will be released May 22nd and will be available for pre-order at invinciblepictures.com/store today.
About A SERBIAN FILM:
A SERBIAN FILM is the story of Milos, a retired porn star who leads a normal family life with his wife Maria and six-year old son Petar in Serbia. A sudden call from his former colleague Layla changes everything. Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to Vukmir - a mysterious, and politically powerful figure in the pornographic business. A leading role in Vukmir's production will provide financial support to Milos and his family for life. A contract insists on his absolute unawareness of a script they will shoot. From then on, Milos is drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem. In order to escape the living cinematic hell he's put into, and save his family's life, Milos will have to sacrifice everything - his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life.
