You had mentioned in your e-mail seeking other films by Kidlat Tahimik other
than "Perfumed Nightmare". Although Facets does not carry "Why is Yellow the
Middle of the Rainbow?" we do carry "Perfumed Nightmare" ($59.95) as well as
another film by Tahimik entitled "Turumba" ($59.95) if you're interested. A
description follows.

"TURUMBA"

Set in a tiny Philippine village, Tahimik's Turumba focuses on one family
which traditionally made papier-mache animals to sell during the Turumba
religious festivities. When they get a huge order, the whole life of the
family is changed, as Tahimik wryly
observes the "creation of the proletariat." Tagalog with English subtitles.

Item# VHS: S01379 Price $59.95

Kidlat Tahimik Philippines 1984 94 mins.

If you have any questions or would like any additional information regarding
this message please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
