In 2011, The British Film Institute (BFI) in London released a DVD version of Privilege (UK, 1967). This is the first Blu-ray release of any of my films. It is also the first time that this film, which was heavily attacked and withdrawn from release there in the 1960s, has been available to the public in the UK. The BFI DVD of Privilege also features my two amateur films The Diary of an Unknown Soldier and The Forgotten Faces. To purchase please contact http://filmstore.bfi.org.uk.

The French association, Rebond pour la Commune (Paris), still participates in screenings and debates of the full-length (5hrs 45mins) version of La Commune.

Once again, my sincere thanks to everyone who has written supportive e-mails. I apologize for not always promptly replying, indeed for sometimes not being able to reply at all. I do always appreciate everything I receive. However, I hope you will understand that it is no longer possible for me to write articles or provide written responses to students’ questions, likewise that I stopped giving interviews a number of years ago.
I want to conclude by thanking Al Urbonavicius in Canada for his design of the site and work as webmaster. Without Al’s support, this site would not exist.
