Ye Yan, the Banquet, and the Legend of the Black Scorpion

I just noticed that The Banquet (Ye Yan), for which, q.v., has been released in the United States with an alternate title: The Legend of the Black Scorpion.

The main thing that that changes is its availability. We can now more easily get the DVD, ask our libraries to purchase the DVD, and invite our students to write essays on the DVD.
