Tired of big holiday multiplex fare turning your brain to mush, and looking for a bit of art and substance instead? Well KimStim/Zeitgeist Films is kicking off 2012 with new releases from two of world cinema's most celebrated auteurs. On Tuesday, January 10th Bela Tarr's "The Man From London" and Hong Sang-Soo's "Night And Day" will hit DVD shelves, and are worth tracking down.

Though it features a star in Tilda Swinton, "The Man From London" is still very much a Bela Tarr film through and through. His first film to premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, the adaptation of the novel by George Simenon is an existential tale centering on a railway worker, who lives with his wife and daughter on the edge of the sea, whose life is thrown into crisis when a deal gone bad leaves him with a suitcase full of money and a guilty conscience for a crime he didn't commit. Though previously available via VOD, the KimStim/Zeitgeist release marks its first time on DVD in the United States.

Meanwhile, "Night And Day" is yet another unique dramedy from filmmaker Hong Sang-Soo, following Seong-nam, a painter who gets busted smoking pot with an American exchange student, and flees to Paris where he drifts making chance encounters and pursuing his art.

So, how can you win a copy of either film? Email us your name and address and tell us which film won Hong Sang-Soo the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes. Please state which film you would prefer (no guarantees, but winners will receive one film or the other).

Update: Contest is closed, winners will be contacted via email.

Contest open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!
