Janus Films was a pioneer distributor of art films by the likes of Fellini, Bergman and Kurosawa. To celebrate its 50 years in business, it has launched a nationwide tour of its films and released a massive new DVD boxed collection, Essential Art House: 50 Years of Janus Films.

The collection features 50 of the studio's most famous films — the movies are not only good, but offer a glimpse into our cultural past.
