Grindhouse Releasing’s Blu-ray of this latest sliver of Seventies lunacy, An American Hippie in Israel, has been dated; and if we were you, we’d get to pre-ordering it immediately, if only because of how friggin’ strange it is.
From the Press Release
Grindhouse Releasing has set a September 10 street date for its deluxe Blu-ray/DVD release of Amos Sefer’s far-out cult classic AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL. The limited edition 3-disc set is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
“We are very proud and excited to present AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL for the first time to U.S. audiences,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “It’s an amazing film, and we’ve spent years making this Blu-ray the ultimate edition of a cult classic. From the film restoration to the massive wealth of bonus features we gathered from around the globe, AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL may be our best release to date!”
Originally filmed in 1972, AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL stars Asher Tzarfati as a dope-smoking Vietnam vet wandering through an insane desert landscape of “machine-gun wielding mimes, robots, bloodthirsty sharks, free-loving debauchery and poignant anti-war monologues.”
Lost for many years, AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL has become a midnight movie sensation in Tel Aviv, where it has been screening to packed crowds. Grindhouse Releasing plans to celebrate the Blu-ray/DVD release with a series of U.S. theatrical screenings planned for the fall.
The Blu-ray/DVD set is limited to 2,000 individually numbered copies.
