I have had an eye out for this title for years. At NCSU, we are down to our
last two working VHS copies. Faculty screen this constantly (I show a lengthy clip
myself to my World Religions students every semester). Perhaps there's a vendor on
this list that will investigate bringing it back? From conversations with
colleagues elsewhere, I suspect it's one of the most used out of print films in
most academic collections. Please let me know if you hear anything.
