Dear Eileen,

For films and documentaries on Asia, I wholeheartedly recommend the AEMS
(Asian Educational Media Services)site at the University of Illinois.

Their reviews are posted at: and
include links to the distributors.

If you go to their list of distributors, you will find many website
listings. Most of these distributors don't just focus on Asian Studies
(for example "University of California Extension Center for Media and
Independent Learning").

Good luck,
