Hi, y'all...

I'm looking for the following:

Director: Minkie Spiro

Title: Bitches & Beauty Queens: The Making of Miss India (2002)
(var. title: Making of Femina Miss India 2002: Bitches & Beauty Queens)

A British-made documentary about the highly competitive world of beauty
pageants in India, culminating with the top prize: Miss India. Following
the efforts of several of the contestants, as well as others involved in
the behind-the-scenes work of getting everyone ready, the film examines
what drives the women toward this particular goal.

Seems to be available only as a bootleg...

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.
