Is Kundun banned from streaming? (8 replies and 1 comment)

I tried checking out Kundun today. I discovered it is available... nowhere.

The film is owned by Disney. Have they pulled it as a form of appeasement? Or has this beautiful movie simply fallen through the cracks?

Tragic either way.

The film belongs to Disney and they have ceased all distribution and manufacture of DVDs and BRs.  This was one of the many conditions of being able to open Disneyland in Shanghai.  

There are DVDs and BRs available on eBay.

Kino Lorber released a Blu-ray of Kundun in North America back in 2019.

This is actually terrible! Such a shame that it's being hidden away. It was/is currently available to stream on a local tv stations free streaming service here in Australia (SBS on demand).

I guess while we're locked down I can make it a small mission to find a Blu-ray copy somewhere...

A reminder of how powerful cinema/art can be.

As far as I know, there are Blu-Rays available distributed by the german label "Arthaus" that also have the english audio track on them. Should be easy to find on amazon.
