No one will ever forget Bjork’s feature film debut, “The Juniper Tree.”
The film was based on the Brothers Grimm book of the same name, and the film adaptation of the book has since become a cult classic. Now, just in time for the holiday season, “The Juniper Tree” is getting a second life in movie theaters. According to Pitchfork, the film has been completely restored by the Wisconsin Center for Film & Theater Research and The Film Foundation in 4K resolution, which will make the film clearer and give it a touch of 21st-century magic.
The restoration was funded by the George Lucas Family Foundation, and thanks to this spruce up of a timely classic, “The Juniper Tree” will see a theatrical re-release next spring, which, afterward, will be granted a digital release. It was a matter of time before “The Juniper Tree” saw a digital remake, given that this cult classic has been clamored by die-hard fans of the film to be restored to its original splendor, with a touch of modern technology, of course.
The exact release date of “The Juniper Tree” in theaters has yet to be released, but, for those heading to AFI Fest on Nov. 10, the film will get a showing there, in all of its remastered glory.
