Distribution rights for "Comrades: Almost a Love Story"

I am hoping to screen this 1996 Peter Chan film starring Maggie Cheung and Leon Lai as part of a feature film series about migration.

Can anyone advise me regarding what company holds distribution rights and the best way to contact them for permission?  This is intended to be an educational event with no charge to participants.

My thanks in advance!
