That's great, Adam! Alonso is one of my favorite filmmakers working at
the moment and I really had no expectation that Liverpool would screen
anywhere in the U.S. outside the festival circuit. That having been
said, unfortunately, I'm not in a position to book a screening
anywhere, but I hope someone else in the Atlanta area might make it a
reality. Otherwise it'll be the typical long wait for a DVD to pop up
somewhere in the world; his first three films have been transferred to
DVD in only mediocre quality (interlaced, non-anamorphic).
I mostly just wanted to commend you for trying to get the work out
there to eyeballs in the States, and I hope I can attend a screening.
