California Newsreel does not distribute BUUD YAM. Apparently it is not in
distribution in the US. Cornelius Moore, the director of our Library of
African Cinema was able to give me the fax number for the films
international agents. They are:
Main Stream
in Paris
fax#: 4763-0762

Good luck.

Definitely NOT Cinecom as they were out of business before this film came
out. You could try California Newsreel. If they don't have it and Facets
does not have it, I doubt it is out there in the US
