Australia SUNBURNT SCREENS (Aussie Boutique label by Umbrella)

Another boutique label is popping up on the Aussie market - this time from Umbrella and set to focus on "landmark Australian cinema."

Starting this thread to keep track of all the releases, assuming this turns into a long-running line!

Newly restored and remastered from a 4K scan by Umbrella, THE LAST WAVE has never looked better. In addition to the new remaster, this release also features brand-new extras including interviews with Richard Chamberlain, Producer Jim McElroy and Director of Photography Russell Boyd, along with a gallery of rarely-seen material and additional extras featuring film critic David Stratton and Filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith. Also featured is a preview of the 1980 documentary ‘David Gulpilil: Walkabout to Hollywood’, to be released in full by Umbrella next year.

Starring Richard Chamberlain, Olivia Hamnett, David Gulpilil and Nandjiwarra Amagula, THE LAST WAVE explores a startling world on the brink of apocalypse – a time and place where Mother Nature and human nature are destined to collide in catastrophic disaster. Featuring atmospheric cinematography by Oscar winner Russel Boyd (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), THE LAST WAVE is a haunting journey into the depths of the unknown, where dreams and nightmares conspire as one.

SYNOPSIS
"Dream is a shadow of something real." Chris Lee (David Gulpilil)Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Peter Weir (Oscar® nominated director of Picnic at Hanging Rock, Gallipoli and Witness) explores a startling world on the brink of apocalypse in The Last Wave, a time and place where Mother Nature and human nature are destined to collide in catastrophic disaster.

When lawyer David Burton (Richard Chamberlain, The Thorn Birds) is assigned a case to defend a group of indigenous Australian men, he is unprepared for the nightmares and dreamscapes ahead. Accused of murdering one of their own, the men stand trial amidst suspicious circumstances and, as Burton becomes plagued by unsettling visions, he is drawn to the mysterious Chris Lee (AFI Award winner David Gulpilil, Storm Boy, The Tracker) for answers to his torment. As the erratic climate turns dangerous, Burton senses a greater power at play, where tribal customs and the ancient ideas of Dreamtime may be more than just an ominous warning.
Featuring atmospheric cinematography by Oscar® winner Russell Boyd (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), The Last Wave is a haunting journey into the depths of the unknown, where dreams and nightmares conspire as one.

EXTRA FEATURES
- Interview featurettes with: Lead Actor Richard Chamberlain • Producer Jim McElroy • Director of Photography Russell Boyd
- David Stratton on The Last Wave
- Trailers From Hell: The Last Wave with Brian Trenchard-Smith - Edit from the 1980 documentary David Gulpilil: Walkabout to Hollywood
- Theatrical Trailer - Gallery

I'm very curious to see what titles Umbrella have planned since they've already released quite a few that would easily be considered "landmark Australian cinema". Perhaps they'll look at more mainstream titles like Chopper, The Castle or Muriel's Wedding.

I also hope this new sub-label helps revived Beyond Genres.

Me too, I haven't seen The Last Wave since the theatre release in the late 70's. I'd prefer to support a new Australian label that could possibly resurrect a lot of great Australian films missing on Blu-ray, rather than Criterion who will just spray and walk away.

Love that Umbrella are releasing a new sub-label on 'landmark Australian cinema'. At least if provides a nice point of difference to their Ozploitation Classics line. But wondering if it might lead to a re-release of a few of their already existing titles in their catalogue. The original Storm Boy, Walkabout comes to mind. Some of these do belong in the line...

Surely a re-release of Puberty Blues is a lock for this line.

While they’re at it, more early Peter Weir. The Plumber, The Cars That Ate Paris, The Year of Living Dangerously...

While I’d love to see stuff like Walkabout and Storm Boy rebranded, lets get some unreleased titles on the format... Stork, Tim, Malcolm, Puberty Blues, Croc Dundee, Man From Snowy River, Sunday Too Far Away, The Big Steal, The Club, Bliss, Chopper, Lantana... surely all shoe-ins for the line. All LONG overdue... though some may be with MadMan.

I'd be surprised if Palace gave up Chopper. It was a big seller for them on dvd.

Then again, they don't seem to be in a hurry to release it on blu-ray, so I guess anything is possible.

Palace also release their films through Madman so if anybody was to release Chopper it would probably be Madman.

Yeah, a few decades ago there was a season of Aussie films on TV (UK), & I think I can just about remember films like Sunday Too Far Away, The Club & Don's Party, & a few more. I'd love to see them on Blu-ray looking great.

Malcolm and The Club should be no-brainers for Umbrella. Even the DVD releases were fantastic.

Mad Max with the mono soundtrack and Australian trailers would be very nice. Including the mammoth documentary The Madness of Max would be even better.

Hopefully they'll put out Steve Jodrell's Shame which was restored by NFSA a few years ago, as well as some Nadia Tass titles like Malcolm and The Big Steal (Mr. Reliable is an underrated one too, but doubt it would make a "landmark cinema" line).

Knowing Umbrellas track record, I can honestly see this label being rereleases off content they have done previously on blu and DVD. We of the never never, walkabout etc. But here’s hoping they do get to the content we’re all after!! Hopefully they’ve seen what Viavision has done with Imprint and know that they market is there for a premium local label

Hopefully they can also release Ann Turner's brilliant Celia, which seemingly had a restoration done in 2017. Umbrella released it DVD only at the time.

Would be nice if they could release all of Ray Lawrence's films and given he has only made 3 (Bliss, Lantana, Jindabyne).

I actually think Bliss is a highly probable release as it was recently restored (and hopefully both versions of the film were restored) but not Lantana as the rights are still with Palace.

That's what worries me. I mean, look at their 'Beyond Genres' line, almost half were re-releases.
