Yellow Veil Pictures is a New York City and Los Angeles-based film sales and distribution company focusing exclusively on boundary pushing genre cinema, seeking to highlight filmmakers who exist on the cusp of commercial and arthouse cinema.

Set during the Napoleonic wars, the film follows the exploits of Alfons von Worden, an officer traveling through the sierra Mountains and with each passing traveler, the interweaving stories grow stranger.

One of Wojciech Has’ most acclaimed films, this surrealist cult epic has attracted support from Luis Buñuel, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and even Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead.
