The Oscar-winning director's World Cinema Foundation has restored 15 features and 2 shorts from 15 countries
Martin Scorsese is spreading the word about a newly preserved collection of films from his non-profit, the World Cinema Foundation (WCF), that will be available to Hulu Plus subscribers as part of the streaming service's 101 Criterion Days of Summer.
In a Hulu video, the Oscar-winning filmmaker revealed eight films from various countries that will be available for streaming. The foundation has restored 15 features and 2 shorts from 15 countries.
"You have some discoveries in store," Scorsese teased in a Hulu video about the partnership.
Presentations include 1960 South Korean film, "The Housemaid," 1973 Senegal production "Touki bouki," and Turkey's 1966 drama "Law of the Border."
"I'm really happy to say that starting this summer, eight of these pictures — some of them pretty hard to find until now — are going to be available to millions of people to watch as part of the Criterion collection on Hulu Plus," he said.
