Where can you find a copy of that documentary? I noticed a spot for a VHS on Amazon (there were no copies). Was there a DVD release (I see nothing on yesasia)?

The only DVD releases were in Germany and Russia, where it was issued in box sets with the rest of the series (and no English subs). The Youtube clip is probably sourced from the old UK VHS. The only in-print English-friendly option is the HK VCD, which has dual Chinese/English subs and also includes the other Asian segments (by Oshima, Jang Sun-woo and Mrinal Sen).
