Hi Lorraine,

I have also searched for this film over the past four to five years since it is 
regularly put on reserve for classes. This year I put in a search and find 
request to Kanopy and received the following response:

We have taken a look into this title and unfortunately we will need to cancel 
this request with you now as the rights owners have gone out of business and we 
will be unable to add this title to Kanopy at this time. We hope this changes 
in the future and if we have any updates we will be sure to let you know.

This in addition to the difficulty of finding even a viable used copy is for me 
clearance enough to copy to DVD as soon as we fill our sadly vacant a/v tech 
staff position.

English subtitles.
