Check out these three short threads for more info. I can't vouch for links and data being up-to-date though...

The 2nd thread in my previous post contains links to that one. If unsuccessful, try PMing the user who posted the french contact info.

No subtitles (not really needed, it's in English), but here's a copy:

If you Google "the Lost Children of Tranquility Bay" you can find some interesting links - but sadly none offering the film for sale.

I thought this was interesting:

It is still listed in Zadig Productions' catalogue (pdf), on page 21:

    Les enfants perdus de Tranquility Bay de Jean-Robert  Viallet  et Mathieu Verboud
    France 2, Planète, SBS Australia, BETV Belgique – 90 minutes

      Prix Michel Mitrani  Festival International de Thessolonique – Grèce 2006
       Mention spéciale du jury - FIPA 2006
      Festival International de documentaire IDFA Amsterdam, 2005
      Festival International des Droits Humains de Genève, 2006
      Festival International des Droits Humains de Paris, 2006
      Festival du film documentaire de Norvège, 2006
      Festival Songes d’une nuit de Paris, 2006
      6th WATCH DOCS Pologne, 2006

    Alors que le monde a les yeux tournés vers Guantanamo et Abu Ghraib, personne ne connaît Tranquility Bay, un centre de « modification du comportement » pour adolescents américains situé en Jamaïque. Tranquility Bay est en réalité un centre de torture et de lavage de cerveau. C’est même le fleuron de WWASP, une multinationale discrète mais puissante, dirigée par des hommes d’affaires de l’Utah.
       
    En 2002, Paula Reeves, avocate en Floride, envoie son propre fils à Tranquility Bay. Une erreur qu’elle ne se pardonnera jamais. Depuis, Paula a engagé un combat à mort contre WWASP. Dans ce combat, Paula est bien seule. Aux États-Unis, il n’existe aucune loi fédérale sur la protection de l’enfance. Et WWASP compte sur ses amitiés politiques pour s’offrir une impunité à vie.[/list]

    I have no clue as to specifics and price, but here's their contact info:

    And if you believe THAT's actually a representative of Zadig Productions, I'd like to let you know that the word "gullible" has vanished from the dictionary. No, really, go look it up!

    Actually, it very well may be. I think it probably is.

    Well, considering that I basically posted a potential boost for Zadig Productions' sales (respectfully complete with attribution and links), not to mention that the pidgen English did not display even a modicum of French grammar transposed into English, my guess is that it is ... in all likelihood ... a TROLL.  :D
