The Merchant Ivory Collection

Upholding their devotion to literary adaptation of the finest kind, the films of Merchant Ivory are the fruit of a rich and unparalleled partnership between three great artists across four decades and three continents , that of producer Ismail Merchant, director James Ivory and writer Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. Following their own unique path in a spirit of true independence they have defined a cinema of consummate quality and intelligence with their award-winning work.

The Merchant Ivory Collection presented here is part of the lifetime work of CEO and founder of the Cohen Media Group, Charles S. Cohen. Mr Cohen was responsible for acquiring the collection and all the films have undergone 2K or 4K restorations as part of the group’s commitment to the preservation of films that ‘have universal appeal and timeless stories’.
