Tonight at VSW: Here Come The Videofreex (4/22/2017)

This documentary checks a lot of boxes for me. I love 1970’s era media, especially amateur video. Especially relevant for today now that everyone carries a video camera in their pocket.

Saturday April 22, 2017 8PM – Visual Studies Workshop – 31 Prince – Suggested donation $5

From the Visual Studies Workshop FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE

Formed in 1969, Videofreex was a pioneer collective of early video producers that formed shortly after consumer video was introduced to the market. Politically motivated, the Videofreex were part of a thriving alternative video network that covered counter culture and many political and social movements of the era. Over nine years together, they produced several thousand videotapes, installations and multimedia events, and trained hundreds of people to communicate fluently in the “new” medium of video, including several workshops held at Visual Studies Workshop. Using footage from these early videotapes, this documentary creates a fascinating portrait of a unique group of activists engaged in media literacy in an era of intense social and cultural change. Founding member Bart Friedman in attendance!
