How can I obtain a copy of Eduardo Paolozzi's short film The History of Nothing for home viewing in the United States? Any format is acceptable.

My hollow advice would be to perhaps contact the Tait Gallery and ask for contact details of his representatives and then ask them if there is a distributor.

Or maybe see if he' still at Edinburgh Art College. If he's there, write a fawning fanmail and he might just produce a copy himself, never know.

Alternatively, google groups may have a specialty group where Paolozzi is known?

I'm sure you've seen these links anyway. It sounds interesting. But I think you have to write some emails/letters. Good luck.

According to this site, Paolozzi's History of Nothing is in the BFI National Film & Television Archive collection. Their Cataloguing Unit can help you track a copy down or at least the right archives to contact. Though, by the looks of the site, you gotta be in the UK, and perhaps part of an art organization.
