I'm trying to find out if these first 3 titles are available for purchase or
rent as videotapes. I already know they can be rented in 16mm from New
Yorker films, but they say they don't sell videos of them. I suspect that
they're the only U.S. distributor, and if they say the titles aren't
available in video, it must be the final answer. However, I thought I'd
give you knowledgeable people an opportunity to prove me wrong. Does anyone
know about buying videos of these?
1) EMITAI
2) XALA
3) BLACK GIRL (La Noire)

These 2 movies were supposedly shown at a film festival. Unfortunately,
I've learned that "film festival" often means "obscure" and "not ever in
distribution." But let's see if anyone can help me with them. These 2
would be okay in video or 16mm:
4) SARRAOUNIA - 1986, from Mauritania, produced and directed by Med Hondo
5) TOUBAB BI - 1991, from Senegal, directed by Moussa Toure

Thanks in advance for any information you can send me.
