Marian,

Film Australia does not have a distributer in the US. THA Media distributes
the video in Canada, but the rights are apparently only for there.

supply/delivery outside Australia. Their address is:

Subject: "Colonists for a Day"

Our Anthropology prof is looking for a very recent program called "Colonists
for a Day", shown at the Margaret Mead film festival. She feels it may be
distributed by Film Australia, and produced 1996?

I'm looking for a distributor, both purchase and rental.

Thanks in advance.
