The version that Icarus is selling is a censored, hideous-looking version that is a disgrace. Don't buy it. I saw the film at BAM recently with one of the filmmakers -- it was beautiful looking, not this dark and hideous video transfer that looks like it was made at K-Mart. If the film doesn't have handwritten titles, it's not the real film. You can read some interesting things about the film and its suppression in the filmmakers' NOTES ON SEVENTEEN -- there's a link on the film's Wikipedia page. I'm sure the real version of the film will be available soon... don't suffer through this travesty.
