It may be that the Len Lye films seen then were just about near the extent of it for decades to come. Which is, of course, not how they would have been seen by an enthusiast for the director's work who became aware of him back in the 30s. Nineteen films in near five decades, with a total running time of a couple of hours, is minuscule in the great scheme of things though the selection on the DVD makes clear that Lye also made documentaries and contributed to the March of Time series among other work. But, scattered over fifty years, it meant that a new film by Len Lye was something precious to behold and aficionados surely went out of their way to track them down.

The DVD seems to have been published only this year. Its availability may be limited but presumably the Len Lye Foundation and the Govett Brewster Gallery in New Plymouth will be able to keep it in print and slowly expand its points of sale.
You can see all of N or NW On Youtube.
