Re: Distribution rights for "Comrades: Almost a Love Story"

I would advise contacting either Rim or Gordon's Film Company Ltd. to see if they still have the rights, but I sadly do not know how to find their contact information. The information is credited here, that is all I know. Rim does not seem to have distributed anything made since the 90s.
