OVID.tv is proud to announce its June slate of 32 streaming releases, 14 of which are SVOD exclusives.

Exclusive premieres include Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s Matter Out of Place, the year’s “most riveting film about garbage” according to Global Comment, joining seven other films by Geyrhalter on OVID.

For Pride Month we feature a documentary on Stonewall and an unsung hero of the gay liberation movement, plus Georgian drama And Then We Danced by Levan Akin. 

Joining OVID’s new Outré collection is Matthew Rankin’s surreal debut The Twentieth Century, championed by The Hollywood Reporter as “Guy Maddin meets John Waters by way of Powell and Pressburger,” and the erotic romp Shortbus by John Cameron Mitchell, described by Indiewire as “a gorgeous revery of a bohemian New York that was already slipping away.” 

Also Werner Herzog’s tender portrait of travel writer and novelist Bruce Chatwin, two recently restored short fiction films by Maurice Pialat and Jean Rouch, as well as an exclusive on visionary artist Kehinde Wiley creating ornate portraits of Black women, correcting a history of exclusion.
