Here Come the Videofreex

Directed by Jon Nealon, Jenny Raskin
2015, 79min

 

In the 1960s and 70s the Videofreex blazed a trail for truly alternative media. Tapping into a treasure trove of recently restored Videofreex tapes, including interviews with icons like Fred Hampton and Abbie Hoffman, Here Come the Videofreex charts the path of this underground video collective, from their time traveling the countercultural beat for CBS News to the establishment of their radically local pirate television station in Lanesville, New York. Directors Nealon and Raskin capture the enthusiasm of the Videofreex as they attempted to harness the democratic power of portable video.

 
The School is Watching

Directed by Dan Schoenbrun
2015, 7min

 

The awkwardness of adolescence finds its apotheosis in this rough-and-tumble found-footage film comprised of high school morning announcements videos.
