We have plenty of the DVDs.   We did this in Washington Square Park last week.  We had a lot of good conversations with people both young and old.  By the way, we are looking to raise funds to buy a projector to present the video more dramatically (on buildings, screens, etc.).  Let us know if you can help ( This email address is being protected from spambots.
