Can someone (Vaso?) kindly advise as to whether or not Big Bang sells to the US?

I read the 2 year old post above indicating that no online sellers can accept international payments online, but is this still the case?

I ordered from Big Bang to the US several monhs ago. At one point the order seemed to get stuck in their system, but their email support was very good and everything got sorted out in the end.

Hello!
I know that this post doesn't belong here, but let me, please, ask something user: "vertovfan", and this is a call to that user. (Later, you can delete this post)
I am writing from Macedonia, and I am also a fan of Yugoslavian films.
Because I am a new member, I can not write private messages.
I saw that you have bought the Branko Gapo, Stole Popov & Ljubisha Georgievski's remastered collections from Macedonia, and I wanna ask you, please, if you're interested for a trade, or sharing them (privately) on the net.
Please, write me a message here, or better on my mail: "jonceodbucin@gmail.com", because here I won't be able to answer to you.
Greetings and all the best! :)

I was in North Macedonia recently, and was pleased to find some Macedonian films in a couple shops (Mister Company and Jugoton) at the main shopping center in Skopje. There was just one copy of the recently-released Kiril Cenevski collection (which I immediately purchased) as well as several copies of the Stole Popov and Ljubisa Georgievski sets, a collection of films by the Manaki brothers (first filmmakers in the Balkans), and several newer Macedonian films. There were also individual releases of the Stole Popov films. I haven't found any online source for the Kinoteka na Makedonija releases, but at least they're available if you happen to visit the country!

The Kiril Cenevski set contains 4 films: Black Seed (Црно семе, 1971), Anguish (Јад, 1975), Lead Brigade (Оловна бригада, 1980), and Knot (Јазол, 1985). They're each on single-layer discs, with Macedonian, English, and Albanian subtitles like the other Kinoteka releases.

I am pissed off because of total lack of pieces of information about VIP Kinoteka DVD boxset. They printed two thousand copies but it looks like they thrown then into a hole.

I have found only one (?!) person who received the boxset but he has not replied to my request about subtitles and bonuses on discs.

A classik Serbian TV horror Leptirica (The She-Butterfly) directed by Đorđe Kadijević will be released in July in limited dual format edition (990 pieces) by Ostalgica.
I finally got around to putting the copy I bought into my player to watch, and found the BD won't let me go any further than the main menu screen, and not really even that far.
It load up to the main menu image, with music playing and smoke/fog drifting around over the image in a loop, but no menu options appear, and I'm locked out of doing anything with the remote.

Has anyone come across this issue, or heard anything about it? Even on another title. I'm thinking I might finally have to install the last firmware update for my player & see if that does anything.

UPDATE: So I tried it on another player & had the same result, though I was at least able to find the movie file's Title by going through the numbers on my remote, which is annoying because this won't work on my Oppo.

Thanks, yeah, I suspect it’s my disc. I ended up watching the DVD anway, and I’m not sure I liked it enough to try and get in touch with the label. For a 60 minute film, it sure dragged its heels, and seems more interested in following around a group of drunk men than exploring any folklore.
