YOU ARE NOT I director Sara Driver said Paul Bowles' agent informed her that the production was the very rare case where shooting the film prior to getting the rights worked out for them since he happened to like the final result. Had they asked for permission before, he would have denied them the rights to the short story. (Photo by Godlis)

 

Archivist Francis Poole discovered the only existing copy of the film at Bowles' residence in Tangier after the film was thought to have been destroyed by a flood at Driver's storage facility. (Photo by Godlis)
