Once upon a time, a group of children venture away from their homes and find a castle. Having no idea the castle is owned by an evil witch, the children are all turned into animals after she catches them playing in the gardens. When a prince passes by, he notices what happened and uses his magical sword to free the children from the evil witches spell.
I saw this motion picture at the 1995 Toronto International Film Festival and have searched for it since then ... first on VHS and since 1997 on DVD. It is from Thailand. It's a harrowingly realistic film and one I hope someday to see again or own on DVD. So the question is: where do all the independent film treasures that do not get distribution deals go? This film is listed with only Toronto in the Release Dates section on IMDb. There must be something that can be done to change this scenario. The film concerns children on the streets of Thailand and the dangers they face and I recall that it was one of the best films that I saw which screened at Toronto's International Film Festival that year. Since then I have seen a number of other treasures that don't seem to get wide release and, worse yet never seem to be available on any home video format.
