Thank you for Miriam Dow for presenting this film which at least for me
is unknown. I' d like to know something about the director and the way
how the film was made. Do you have any information on this?
Thanks also for those who have given the address of Women Make
Movies. But what about "Fire Eyes" by Soraya Mire, is there any
information how to get hold on this film? It sounds really interesting.
