This illustrates an interesting dilemma when programming these days--the first choice, of course, would be to screen the work on film, but if the available prints are so bad is it a legitimate choice to go to a pristine DVD or blu-ray?
Interestingly, some of the big distibutors will charge the same fee to screen their crappy circulating print as they will for the rights to screen your disc copy!

> Following up on Jeremy's post, MoMA does distribute "Rape" via their circulating library. I recently rented a copy for a screening in Oberlin, and it arrived about three days after the screening date. However, I was implored not to show the print by Ono's film archivist, who had caught wind of the screening beforehand, due to the poor condition of the 16mm copy. She ended up sending a DVD copy of the film, which was excellent, and which I had no choice but to show since the print didn't arrive in time anyway.
