        My understanding is that Debord's films are unavailable, at his
request, to anyone in any format.  Perhaps this will change, unfortunately,
with his death; this was the case with Jack Smith's and Andy Warhol's
films, which were withheld from distribution by the filmmakers themselves
until their deaths; I've wondered if the films of the late Gregory
Markopoulous -- which he withdrew from American audiences -- might finally
again see the light of day/the screen.  This is an interesting question of
course, for debate: should we be able to see the work of a filmmaker even
if that filmmaker doesn't want us to?  Should we be so eager to disrespect
the filmmaker's wishes after their deaths?
