MUBI Special

Exclusive new restorations of classic, under-known, and once-lost films.

The Juniper Tree

Nietzchka Keene Iceland, 1990

Rediscovered

Björk made her dazzling film debut in this monochromatic medieval fantasy, in which she channels a witchy, supernatural energy. A feminist retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, director Nietzchka Keene shoots the otherworldliness of Iceland on 35mm: enjoy it in this stunning restoration.

Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind

John Gianvito United States, 2007

Rediscovered

A nation has many histories, most of which are left behind in popular retelling. John Gianvito’s extraordinary documentary, beautifully restored, has the courage to find a new way of understanding the history of the United States: through the markers, honored or forgotten, placed for us to remember.

Malina

Werner Schroeter Germany, 1991

Rediscovered

MUBI is thrilled to unveil the restoration of this criminally overlooked adaptation of Ingeborg Bachmann’s novel. A startling depiction of female consciousness with a jaw-dropping Isabelle Huppert, Werner Schroeter’s hallucinatory love triangle overflows with subconscious frenzy and fervid passions.

The Lighthouse

Maria Saakyan Russia, 2006

Rediscovered

The first Armenian feature directed by a woman, Maria Saakyan’s bold debut is a mesmerizing journey weaving village life and reveries into a swirling vision reminiscent of Tarkovsky. Saakyan’s life was tragically cut short, but this new restoration beautifully showcases her extraordinary vision.

The Invincibles (Director's Cut)

Dominik Graf Germany, 1994

Expired
Rediscovered

Dominik Graf reinvents popular genre cinema for our times, thrillingly embedding his stories in the political and social tapestry of Germany. This gripping police saga had a troubled production, but in a restored director’s cut its brave vision of crime, corruption and violence is genuinely epic.

Pharos of Chaos

Manfred Blank, Wolf-Eckart Bühler West Germany, 1983

Expired
Rediscovered

On the birthday of the great Sterling Hayden, see a side you’ve never seen of the actor best known for Asphalt Jungle and his work with Stanley Kubrick. In extended conversations, a bearded, boozing Hayden spins captivating yarns of his extraordinary life: sailing, war, Hollywood, and naming names.

The Shipwrecker

Wolf-Eckart Bühler West Germany, 1984

Expired
Rediscovered

Sterling Hayden was a great actor and many other things: A ship’s captain, a WW2 OSS agent, a heartthrob, and a friendly witness at the HUAC hearings. This unique biopic takes a brilliantly analytical approach to this multi-faceted person, looking back at Straub-Huillet and forward to I’m Not There.

The Cow

Dariush Mehrjui Iran, 1969

Expired
Rediscovered

We are proud to present a new restoration of Dariush Mehrjui’s classic of pre-revolution Iran. This extraordinary combination of realism and mysticism was banned at the time for its unflattering picture of the country, but was quickly taken for a masterpiece abroad and later welcomed back at home.

L'enfant secret

Philippe Garrel France, 1979

Rediscovered

A hidden gem from Philippe Garrel’s haunting filmography, this pocket melodrama meditates on loss, filmmaking, and the obstacles of an unstable relationship. Borrowing biographical details from the French auteur’s own love story with the singer Nico, L’enfant secret is a work of intimate poetry.
