The University of Michigan’s International Institute has just announced the last-minute cancellation of the planned showing of the film Out of the Ashes, scheduled for Tuesday, 5 April. Sources at the I.I. have told MCA that, after the film’s planned US release was delayed, the I.I. immediately ordered a region 2 DVD from the film’s distributor, but, for reasons that are not clear to the I.I., no DVD has been forthcoming. It is hoped to reschedule this showing at a later date.
