SOLSTICE: 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (1993) (BLU-RAY)
Directed By:  Jerry Vasilatos
Composed By:  Balint Sapszon

25 years ago, filmmaker Jerry Vasilatos began his journey as an independent filmmaker with a dream to make a Christmas movie, going from script to screen with “Solstice", a Christmas story which was broadcast into millions of households as Lifetime Television's Original Holiday World Premiere Movie in 1994.

This year, the newly restored 25th Anniversary Limited Edition with a brand new orchestral score has garnered nominations and awards including Best Drama and Best Score at the Action on Film Megafest, Hollywood Dreams International Film Festival, Los Angeles Film Awards and Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.

Set in frigid, mid-winter Chicago, "Solstice" tells the story of Nick and Kristine (played by Michael Kelley & Mary McCloud), a disillusioned young couple dealing with a broken romance that regain a new sense of hope and optimism during a lonely Christmas Eve.

Harkening other perennial Christmas classics like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Mr. Krueger's Christmas", "Solstice" deals with personal seasonal introspections as relevant today as they were 25 years ago. The film was restored after scanning the original camera negative in 2K and the sound mix recreated from the original reel to reel elements. Along with composer Bálint Sapszon's award -winning new score recorded by the Budapest Scoring Orchestra, the film looks and sounds better now than when it was originally released to reflect the director’s fully realized vision for audiences that remember it, and new audiences discovering it for the first time.
