You might have to pray, to watch Fabre's Amor Pedestre, i'm not aware
of it ever being released on home video, I think it was screened in a
couple of italian film festivals, Torino maybe... but then again I
might be wrong, but I guess that only some european cinematheques have
it, like maybe the italian and french one, and they dont borrow... For
individuals at least. I think it might be simpler to watch the
surviving fragments of Anton Giulio Bragaglia 1916 Tha´s. One of the
few surviving futurist films.
