Subject: Christine Edzard Films on Video
For those of you who have been waiting for Christine Edzard's As You
Like It to appear on NTSC video, Buena Vista (who owns the North
American rights) is being a stickler about Edzard's company
manufacturing even a single video in NTSC (North American) format.
We're still working things out, but it might be a while yet before we
are able to convince them to allow a small run of the title.
On the other hand, Edzard's The Children's Midsummer Night's Dream,
performed entirely by students at underprivileged London schools, is
currently available for North American video players. As far as I know,
Poor Yorick is the only source for this title on this side of the
puddle, at least for the time being.
