This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction print, with a picture image that is quite detailed and with a reasonable range of greytones. A moderate amount of dust, with some light emulsion damage and speckling are present in the source print. Color-tints have been digitally added to this windowboxed natural-speed video transfer.

The film is accompanied by a serviceable music score of compositions performed on MIDI digital piano compiled by Rich Oliver.

SUNRISE SILENTS has discontinued business and this edition is OUT-OF-PRINT.
