Arrow will also expand beyond the Arrow Label to include such international titles as Cinema Paradiso, plus TV series Gomorrah and The Bridge. It will also bring a welcome focus on special features, such as rarely-seen and newly-created extras and exclusive interviews, with its “Digital Deluxe editions” of titles. Arrow Stories will also form part of the catalogue, comprising documentaries, interviews and video essays to complement its seasons and selections.
