This is an interesting lead. If this is the Mitch Block I know, he is the
founder of Direct Cinema,Ltd, a company which distributes documentaries.
They're located in LA. I was his AI at USC where he taught as an adjunct in
the 80's and early 90's (he may still . . .)

Subject: Re: No Lies

"No Lies" was directed by Mitchell Block in 1973.  You might look at a
book called "Cutting Edge: Art Horror and the Horrific Avant garde" by
Joan Hawkins.  The film is mentioned seeral times in the book (especially
in relationship to Yoko Ono's film, "Rape") and the author provides an
excellent list of video distributors at the back of the book.
