We are so excited to announce the release of the Educational Edition of Amigo on DVD!
The Educational Edition of John Sayles’s 17th feature film AMIGO — which explores the little-discussed Philippine-American War and its effects on people on both sides of the conflict — was officially launched at the American Studies Association’s Annual Meeting in San Juan in November. John and Maggie were both in attendance at the ASA meeting, and are excited to be bringing Amigo to the upcoming 127th Annual Meeting of the American History Association the first week of January 2013.
This scholastic DVD is perfect for universities, education professionals, and libraries. In addition to having a copy of the movie before the general public, the price of this edition includes the right to screen the movie unlimited times in classroom and lecture environments (screening a “retail consumer DVD” in a classroom is a violation of copyright law). The scholastic edition is loaded with features and extras geared toward students and educators, and will be a real asset to any classroom, especially those focusing on American Studies, Asian Studies, Film Studies, or World History.
The Amigo scholastic edition is packed with features and exclusives, including:
- A Discussion Guide by Theo Gonzalves (Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County)
- Discussions of the Philippine/American War and Amigo’s place in film history, by director/screenwriter John Sayles
- Access to the FULL screenplay in both Tagalog and English
- Director and Cast interviews
- Featurettes on writing, directing, research, and shooting by director/screenwriter John Sayles
- Access to exclusive online content
- And much more
The cost of the scholastic DVD is $299.99.
