Saless is one director whose work I'd love to get into. (I don't think I've seen any of his films yet). Thanks for the heads-up on the ioffer store. That seller has a really nice selection of interesting DVDs. Ottinger's website sells copies of several of her movies for between 30 and 180 euros. ulrikeottinger.com, if you're wondering. You really make Dorsky's work sound fantastic. I like your description of it being "outside a self involved ethos" - that's very much how I'd describe Deren's work, even though I still quite adore her. Well, with those tantalizing details in mind, I'll have to go forth and check out some of his films - if I can manage to track them down!
http://mubi.com/films/sarabande The comments on the sarabande page is the best I know of. I do wonder if he has a website where you can buy them like some other filmmakers although his films have been making there way around.* Those prices are pretty crazy no wonder she's so unkown you'd imagine at least the shorts would be a little bit cheaper.. anyway def. get Ticket of No Return from that seller.
