Default US festival 1982 the US generation documentary

I just recently found out about this documentary it features Fleetwood Mac. I was wondering if anyone had purchased it or seen it. If so, thoughts? Do they show full performances from the bands? If so, what songs did they show for Fleetwood Mac? Are any of them the ones that got cut from the Mirage 1982 HBO thing?

EDIT: I just checked YouTube for videos from the 1982 US festival, of course they have videos of every other band performing but no Fleetwood Mac videos.

All the informations are on the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/usfestmovie
It's been 2 or 3 years now that the documentary is to be released, I sincerely forgot about it.
The last update is from February 2013 and says:

Dear Us Festival Fans.....we know there are many thousands of you out there clamoring to see the Us Festival: Us Generation 1982 doc feature and/or Us Festival 1983 Days 1 - 3. The following is a short update and please be patient as we are working very hard to bring you the most complete programs that fully recapture the spirit and essence of the 1982 & 1983 amazing events.

US FESTIVAL 1982: THE US GENERATION (doc feature): In post production. We recently concluded deals with DVD/Home Video Companies in US & Japan. Upon completion of the film we will announce our distribution partners and release dates.
Thanks again Us Festival fans for your continued interest in the projects. You've waited 30 years, so I sincerely hope you can wait a few more months.

The promo released in 2013 showed 2 seconds from the Sisters of the moon performance. You can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWQKNxuGqg4

There are a lot of videos of other US festival performances on YouTube. Van Halen's entire set from the US fest is on YouTube. But not one Fleetwood Mac video.

They're probably having trouble negotiating royalties. It's always money that blocks these releases.

I know Stevie's set is online somewhere from somebodies VHS/Betamax tapes.

Whats on YT probably will disappear when the clips of artists gets released on dvd.
