Throughout recent years, Rob Epstein has cemented himself at the forefront of the queer cinema movement. With an inimitable ability to turn his lens on and capture the vibrant queer culture, Epstein's films can move from celebratory to sombre in an instant, never turning from the difficult issues and always maintaining an air of sincerity - regardless of subject matter. It is for this reason that Rob Epstein has won himself or been nominated for numerous Academy Awards, Emmys and film festival prizes. This stunning five-disc set features four of Rob Epstein's most acclaimed documentaries, including The Celluloid Closet, The Times of Harvey Milk, Paragraph 175 and Common Threads. -- Amazon UK.
