Happy Monday to you all...

Does anyone know if/when the following film will be out on DVD?

Utvandrarna =3D The Emigrants (1971) Max von Sydow, Liv Ullmann;
directed by Jan Troell; writing credits Bengt Forslund; Vilhelm Moberg
(novels)

Summary: In the middle of the 19th century, Kristina and Karl-Oskar live
in a small rural village in Smaaland (southern Sweden). They get married
and try to make a living on a small spot of land. However, the small
size of their land, the infertile soil, and some bad harvests makes it
tough. One of their children even starve to death. Thus, they decide to
emigrate to the U.S. They meet a group of farmers with their families
planing the emigration under the leadership of a banned priest. They
sell everything and embark for the U.S. The journey on the sailing ship
is long and tedious. Some of the emigrants will never reach the New
World.

Thanks!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
