Yo, Tapeheads! We are totally VHStoked to team up with the fantastic folks at Write Brain TV to bring you VIDEO KALEIDOSCOPE!
TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE NOW from Write Brain TV!
VIDEO KALEIDOSCOPE is a special virtual one-night only screening that invites you to turn on, tune in, & drop-out for an all-out, all-night celebration with a VHSmorgasbord showcasing some of the best in shot-on-tape cinema!
This special virtual one-night only screening at the Write Brain Theater will beam you from your living room back in time, on a cosmic journey back to trace the story of one of the most monumental & mind-melting formats of all time… VHS!
With a cosmic & careful curation, Write Brain TV & Lunchmeat will take audiences on a rare odyssey through the kaleidoscopic lens of shot-on-video filmmaking. From the strange but true story of bootleg tapes battling against a Romanian regime, to the grimiest of 80’s heavy metal parking lots that helped make bootleg tape trading a way of life, this exploration will include documentaries, experimental films, & work from some of the best up-and-comers still utilizing the everyman format to challenge the language of cinema in a way only tape can!
With the high cost of film, VHS, Hi8, & other forms of tape were the format of the working class & artists without means, giving the power to anyone with a few bucks to conjure an image & become filmmakers. Whether it was a family member trying to capture a memory on celluloid, or a couple of friends coming together to make a horror film on a shoe-string budget, the VHS medium was a crucial element in turning anyone with a vision into an auteur.
VIDEO KALEIDOSCOPE invites you to explore the stories that only VHS can tell.
Join us for this one-night only screening on February 16th at 10pm EST. Tickets are available via Write Brain TV!
