After watching the AA awards lasat week and seeing that "Big Mamma" won for
Best short documentary, I was going to put this inquiry to the vidlist serv
group but got in a quagmire of work. Then, upon perusing the list today, I
saw the inquiry about the doucmentary being available on video and I just
had to ask this question. In her thankyou comments, the producer of "Big
Mamma" acknowledged some people who had helped her - among them was
Mitchell Block. I was wondering if this was the same Mitchell Block of
Direct Cinema, Ltd.? Anyone hazard a guess? Also, I've been trying to
locate a source for the video "The Man Who Planted Trees" -- this is
probably the best video I've ever seen (ok, I've lead a sheltered life), --
it's got action, pathos, great narration and visuals, etc. Thanks for any
information. Jim Scholtz.
