    Actually there are five parts to the piece. You left out “Slon Tango” and “Bullfight in Okinawa”

  2. Thanks for the correction. I’ve seen Slon Tango but not Bullfight in Okinawa. Do you know where to access that piece?

    Same here- I have seen every piece on youtube except “Bullfight in Okinawa”

    Icarus has the whole thing on DVD: http://homevideo.icarusfilms.com/new2006/bes.html

    At $30 it seems a bit steep, but according to the website, the Bestiary collection of short films is also on the same DVD as The Case of the Grinning Cat and Three Cheers for the Whale, so in all it’s a little over 90 minutes of material.
