Hey this is Rory Brosius.
We were at IC together (you finished a year above me).
As far as the technique is concerned I am not completely sure, I believe it
was a single source moving the same way as someone would demonstrate the
earth completing a revolution.

Concerning the viewing of the piece, I believe canyon cinema has a print of
it and you can look at their catalogue online. Their rental prices are not
too high but you would possibly need to put a screening together at AFI. I
don't know if you are allowed to allocate funds or put on events, but it
would also be a good chance to screen some of his other great work. Talking
to a local independent theatre or a library might help you as well.

Sorry I couldn't be more help but hope this gets you started.
