      Subject: The Polymath 2 DVD Set

      Maestromedia is proud to announce the release of the two-disc DVD set, The
      Polymath, or the Life and Opinions of Samuel R. Delany, Gentleman. This
      80-minute feature, directed by Fred Barney Taylor, is a cinematic portrait
      of this larger-than-life iconic figure.

      The Polymath fluidly fuses meditative and experimental imagery,
      autobiographical anecdotes, family home movies, and literary excerpts to
      produce a stylized and highly unusual documentary. The film's nonlinear
      structure follows Delany's own use of autobiography, science-fiction, social
      criticism, pornography and semiotics. The film also features an appearance
      by novelist Jonathan Lethem.

      The bonus disc contains 2 and 1/2 hours of never before-seen Delany
      interviews and includes the full version of his film, The Orchid.

      The Polymath debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2007 and played to
      critical acclaim at LGBT film festivals in London, San Francisco, Los
      Angeles, Chicago, and Seattle. It received the Best Documentary Award at the
      2008 Philadelphia GLFF, and was called "the best undistributed film" by the
      film editor of The New Yorker.

      The Polymath has received extremely favorable reviews in The New Yorker,
      Time Out, The Village Voice, and Variety. Additional reviews, festival
      catalog pages, and articles can be found by Googling the entire name of the
      film, The Polymath, or the Life and Opinions of Samuel R. Delany, Gentleman.

      The 2- DVD set is available for purchase for $30. Postage and handling
      charges will be waived for Delany-list members with postal addresses in the
      United States. Payment may be made to the PayPal account,
      fredtaylor@.... The DVD set will be shipped out within 48 hours.
