As you have already mentioned the National Library of Australia has
aquired a copy (16 mm) in 1997. They must have got it somewhere from.

MOMA has screened the film in December 2000.

But after all there doesn't seem to exist any video with this title. And
there was no entry in WorldCat. And it has never been published on video
in France as far as I see.

with kind regards
