Hi Videolib,

Has anyone on the list bought DVDs from an online company called
yesAsia.com? A teacher here has recommended purchasing "Song of the
Exile" by Ann Hui from them and somehow by looking at the site I have
the feeling their DVDs may not be totally legit.

Can't see "Song of the Exile" on DVD from any U.S. source, which
makes me even more suspicious. Kino had carried it on VHS.

Thanks for any information.

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.
