Hello all,
This movie, "When the Levees Broke," was a 2006 HBO production,
directed by Spike Lee. I've been asked to find out about PPR. When
Matt Bailey asked this same question on Videolib in November, he says
he didn't receive any positive answers.

The DVD has been released and is available from HBO themselves,
Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, etc., but those are home-use copies.
The woman I spoke with at the HBO online store today didn't sound
entirely certain when she told me there's no public-performance
distributor. Should I believe her? If anyone has recent information
(positive or negative) about PPR, I'd greatly appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks in advance.
Marilyn Huntley

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.
