I came across the announcement that was posted about sources for Indian
videos. I too have a long list of films for a course that I will teach next
year and am trying to locate sources from whom I can either purchase the
films, or at worst, borrow. I'm including my preliminary list here so if
they correspond to any that you have found sources for, please let me know.
They would all be required to be subtitled in English.
