    Dear Isabel
    When I was searching here on internet after information about the very same film Kolor Mask (by Sao Gamba) I findI Your Question above.
    Did You find a copy of the film, or got some information about how to get/buy a copy!?

    I have a -small- role in the film, shot in Nairobi 1986, and I have search for years to find the film on VHS/DVD.

    Please send me a note!
    Best regards//Göran (Stockholm, Sweden)
