What better way to celebrate news of Gray’s latest seeing the inside of movie theatres (instead of languishing on the VOD market) than with a look at back at the celebrated director’s first film?

Late last week came news that James Gray’s “The Immigrant” — which we are quite taken with — would be getting limited theatrical run in a couple of months. What better way to celebrate news of Gray’s latest seeing the inside of movie theatres (instead of languishing on the VOD market) than with a look at back at the celebrated director’s first film?

The iconic Franco-German channel Arte has released a nearly hour-long special that takes a look at Gray’s directorial debut “Little Odessa” with some interviews with the filmmaker himself,Tim Roth and Vanessa Redgrave, among others. For fans of the Brighton Beach-set film, it’s illuminating walk down memory lane and for new arrivals, it’s a great primer for the Silver Lion-winning film. Though the special has some unsubtitled French narration, the interviews are all in English.

Watch the documentary below, along with the trailer for the 1995 film.
