Hello all,
I have a two part question about rights and such concerning this film.
There is a professor on our campus who in the normal routine of his
course is showing El Norte, however he wants to open his showing for
anyone who is interested. I just told informed the professor that that
would void the fair use rights, because they want to advertise the
showing but not charge. Supposedly there is a discussion afterwards and
the students of his course must be there. Am I right to say they need
public performance rights to do this, or would someone say that this is
still within fairuse?
2nd part, if I am right, which I think I am, does anyone know who to
contact to get permission to show El Norte in this situation?
