    All help is needed on this one.

    My girlfriend this afternoon put me on a weird fucking mission. Find an indie film that she saw and loved at a film festival the other year on DVD. The film in question is Our Burden Is Light. I've never heard of this film before; but then again, my schmuck ass is usually off going to see such cinematic pieces of art like Paparazzi.

    Brief History:
    The DVD was released earlier this year by (groan) Madacy Entertainment, but then quickly discontinued. So we're dealing with an out-of-print title. She swears to me that the DVD exists. There's cover art. There's a UPC code. But I've seen no other proof that this film exists on DVD. No reviews, nothing. Hell, the film isn't even on DVD in another region (which then I could buy for her and then tell her to go buy a Cyberhome or Malata DVD player).

    She wants this DVD more than anything else at the current moment, and since I am her loving and caring boyfriend, it is my goal to attain this DVD. As of now, I have seen no websites containing this DVD for sale. Not even people on eBay or Half.com are selling this DVD. What am I supposed to do?

    Do I track down the people who made this film and ask them for a copy? Do I call Madacy and tell them that their DVDs suck, but I'd like a copy of this film on DVD? Do I sell my soul to the devil for a copy of the DVD?

    And does this DVD even exist?!?!

    Arrrrrrgh. It'd be easier to find a copy of the original Little Shop of Horrors: Special Edition at this rate. [​IMG]
