Here Come the Videofreex!
Formed in 1969, the Videofreex were part of a thriving alternative video network that covered counterculture 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 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.
