Details

Although mostly unknown, the Videofreex were pioneering in their documentation of American counterculture from 1969 to 1978. Founded by young CBS executive Don West, they travelled the country in an RV taping stories of the counterculture ignored by TV news, on new ‘portapak’ recording devices. This collective of young men and women managed to document anti-war, black power and womens’ rights protests, along with major counterculture events like Woodstock. This new documentary provides a comprehensive insight into the group, highlighting their importance to artistic communities all across the world. 

This screening is presented in conjunction with GoMA, around their exhibition ‘Please Turn Us On’.
