For Globetrotters

New York – Run by Bahman Maghsoudlou, a film producer and scholar from Iran, the International Film & Video Center gives over a third of the video rentalbins in its small midtown Manhattan duplex to foreign films. A large mail-order business in video sales, in the United States and abroad, really drives the store; this means that what you see in the rental bins is only part of what you can rent.

I asked if the store had Harold Llyod’s Freshman, a film that video stores seem never to carry. It had a sealed copy for sale, and happily opened it on the spot, adding it to the rental stock.

The New York Times, August 1997
