Yes they need permission and it may not be easy. The film was SUPPOSED to be
reissued by Artisian about 3 years ago but it never happened and they have
since merged with Lion's Gate. HOWEVER I have just spotted the first legit
public screening in YEARS which is going to take place with the director
present at this years Ebert Fest in Urbana Illinois. If you want to try to
track it THIS way and I think Nava DOES own or know about the rights contact
me DIRECTLY and I will dig out my festvial contact
