I have had this DVD on hold for a YEAR. My position in line has not changed. I just suggested the purchase as klaret did. If enough people request this, they will probably purchase more copies. If you are waiting in line for this movie, please go to "make a purchase suggestion" and make this request. Otherwise, we will all be waiting forever.
UPDATE: I spoke to the library (SPL). Unfortunately this movie is out of "print" so the library cannot purchase more new DVDs and the library does not purchase used DVDs. Therefore, be patient - this one copy is all that the SPL has. When your hold is about to expire, you can call the library and they will extend your hold out a year. I am FINALLY next in line!!!!!

UPDATE: I finally got to watch this. Great movie and fantastic acting!

Revised comment: At KCLS, all 6 copies of this movie have been lost, and it is no longer available. I have requested that KCLS acquire a new copy, as it remains in demand. SPL does have one copy, it appears.

Have you ever felt the sting of discrimination? Have you ever felt ostracized? When you are oppressed how does it make you feel? This is an insightful, informative, educational, and enlightening DVD to assist viewers to "focus" on the true meaning of abusing power and terrorizing other human beings. *Well developed plot with an engaging and engrossing cast. **WARNING: has some graphic scenes and is not for the faint of heart.
