The battle over VOD

The VOD battle is just starting to heat up according to a New York Times article that follows-up on the open-letter sent out by NATO last week. No, it’s not the NATO you’re thinking of. In what has to be one of the most unfortunate examples of overlapping acronyms since the establishment of the Female Body Inspectors, NATO stands for the National Association of Theatre Owners – and they are not happy. Michael Cieply reports on what might size-up to be a sticky mess in an era where film distribution and exhibition are going through big changes.

Carr writes, “Tim and Chris were very different men who died because they had something in common: each thought it important to bear witness, to make images that communicated human suffering and send them out to the world.”
