Hi all,

I just sent the following report to the head of Reserves, about videos
which I'm having difficulty finding. Any clue as to sources? The first
one has to be a letterboxed dvd; the others can be videos or dvds.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as always!


Minnelli: Home from the Hill (letterboxed dvd)
---Facets lists it as "no longer available" and Amazon as
"not yet released." I've tried several sources, including out of print video
dealers such as Movies Unlimited, without success.

Aleinar et al: Africa in the New World: Salvador da Bahia, Brazil
---The only mention I can find of this video/dvd at all is
in Trinity's catalogue. I wrote to my counterpart at Trin, but Mary tells
me it is so old, she can't tell me where they acquired
it. (She does wish us a Merry Christmas, though!)

Brewer: Bahia, Africa in the Americas
---This video used to be available from the Extension
Media Center at UC Berkeley. Alas, they no longer sell videos; their site
says they will
post the names of other distributors when
available, but none is given for this title. I can't find it, new or used,
anywhere else.

(director?) Cuando o crisulo danca? (When blacks dance?), produced
by Loes Producoes Artisticas e Culturais Ltda.
---I can't locate a copy anywhere, new or used.

I have sent a query to the University of Miami about
--- Levine: Faces of Slavery
It was distributed by them in 1990, but I don't find any current sources
for it, nor is it listed for sale on their site.
