You might have also seen a great number of his films on video at the
ZKM show MindFrames that closed very recently. I don't think any of
that will be distributed, although from talking to Steina at the
show, there is a possibility that her analytic breakdowns of Zorns
Lemma as well as a few other Frampton & Paul Sharits films may be
available at some point (pending approval of their estates). Of
course, these are designed to be supplementary to actually seeing the
works in their original form on 16mm.
From having seen many of them both on film and video, I'd say rent
the prints--the difference is worth it. My festival (FLEX) did a
Frampton show of Zorns Lemma and (nostalgia) in Gainesville last year
& asked people who came to contribute a couple bucks & we more or
less broke even. So, at least in the States, it's hardly impossible.
