Special Edition features new, restored high-definition digital transfer, archival interviews with director Marcel Camus and actress Marpessa Dawn, new video interviews with Brazilian cinema scholar Robert Stam, Jazz historian Gary Giddins, and Brazilian author Ruy Castro, À la recherche d' Orfeu negro,' a feature-length documentary about Black Orpheus's cultural and musical roots and it's resonance in Brazil today, Theatrical trailer and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic Michael Atkinson.
