Greetings, All:

One of our patrons is looking for a film produced by Hans Jurgen
Syberberg in 1977 called *Our Hitler - A Film from Germany*. It is over
seven hours long and combines puppetry, music and live character actors
in dealing with the Holocaust. It was both controversial and critically
acclaimed. Stephen Lewis interviewed Syberberg for CBC-FM's Stereo
Morning series a number of years ago, and their conversation was
reproduced in *Art Out of Agony: The Holocaust Theme in Literature,
Sculpture and Film* (published by the CBC in 1984).

Does anyone know if this title is available in video format, and, if so,
who the distributor is? Variety's Video Directory did not list it.

Many thanks for any info you can provide.
