Ok I am back from vacation
to add to Brian's info.
The Boat People was a New Yorker title but I guess they never did retail
video on it
Summer Snow is a tragic case where the film was bought by Miramax those
great saviors of independent film but they NEVER released it at all
Kino did release SONG OF THE EXILE by Ann Hui but our rights expired. It is
probably available for rental
