Over a decade ago, I completed this version of my website dealing with the media crisis - which was re-issued in book form in France by Cédric Biagini of Éditions l'échappée (Paris) in the spring of 2015.
The foreword to the new book edition of Media Crisis can also serve as an introduction to some of the themes covered in this website.

Those of you who have already used this website, will notice some major changes.
Since many of the sections showing the availability of each film were completely out-of-date, we decided to remove them entirely, and we ask you to please contact me directly regarding access to my work for theatrical screenings and DVD copies. Depending on the request, it may be passed on to Oliver Groom or Patrick Watkins, who deal with certain of my films.
Until recently, we used a contact form to enable you to communicate with me. Unfortunately, this has led to a flood of commercial and other unwanted messages.
I have removed the form and suggest that you communicate your email address to me in a letter via the post. I will respond to you from my private email address.
I would appreciate your limiting any correspondence to matters relating to the access of my work, or to messages in general (which I always look forward to receiving!). However, I no longer do interviews of any kind, nor can I respond at length to questions about my work, as I am often requested to do. Also, I generally stopped attending public events to do with my work some years ago. I hope to explain these decisions in a new critical media statement in the near future.
I sincerely appreciate your understanding and support!

LA COMMUNE La nouvelle direction de 13 Productions à Paris
vient de sortir une version DCP plus courte
de La Commune pour le cinéma commercial.
C’est la version que j’ai spécialement produite
en 2005. Cette version courte est maintenant
disponible en DVD chez Doriane Films.
Veuillez s’il vous plait nous indiquer quelle
est la version souhaitée et nous vous mettrons
en relation soit avec 13 Productions pour des
projections cinématographiques commerciales
soit avec l’Association Rebond for La Commune
(Patrick Watkins) pour des projections-débats
de la version TV d’origine de 5 heures 45 minutes.
A l’heure actuelle le DCP et le DVD de la version
cinématographique n’existent qu’en français.
