Who did you write at the Academy?  May Haduong, who coordinates loans and 
viewing appointments, is very good at returning emails.

The film is at the Academy Film Archive, in the Whitney Collection.  You can

Subject: [Frameworks] Alchemy / James Whitney's Dwija (1973)

Hello all,

Is anyone aware of any available 16mm prints / DVD / VHS or online versions of 
James Whitney's 1973 'Dwija'? I would like to review it for my PhD research 
(related to alchemy in the moving image), and I may then see if I might be able 
to screen it. 

I have sent inquiry emails to CVM, the LA Film Forum,  the Academy Film Archive 
and Iota, but have yet to hear anything back. I cannot seem to find who 
actually has this film.

I would also be interested to hear any thoughts Frameworkers might have on 
films / filmmakers that deal consciously with ideas of alchemical 
transformation, from any era. 

Many thanks for your help

Richard Ashrowan
