Our Chavo del Ocho DVDs continue to be very, very popular, and I believe
we ordered them from Amazon. When I was researching titles, I found
Midwest Tape has an excellent selection. Other popular titles in our
collection are Marcelino Pan y Vino, Cronos, Cadena Perpetua, and La Ley
de Herodes. Thought the Cantinflas films would be more popular than they
are (except El Padrecito, which does all right) and apparently I'm
nearly alone in enjoying watching El Santo kick some Martian tail. Good
luck-I know I had a great time seeking out titles that would appeal to
popular tastes.

Subject: [Videolib] Seeking Mexican DVD Recommendations
Anyone have suggestions for Mexican DVDs (and suppliers) that would
appeal to transient workers and be suitable for a public library?
A variety of Nuevo Cine Mexicano (New Mexican Cinema) titles are on the
way and others are in the collection but I have been advised that those
may not be of interest to the majority of the people we are trying to

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.
