LAMVF 2015 Day 3
It’s the 1980s. You can turn on MTV, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, knowing you’ll find a constant stream of music videos. It’s the 1990s. You’re up early on Saturday morning and just old enough to know that if you toggle between MTV and VHI, you can catch the new Britney Spears music video, instead of watching cartoons. These music videos—mini-movies where young filmmakers cut their teeth—were ambitious and big budget works of art, and plentiful. They were the internet before the internet—pure pop culture transmissions, accessible from the privacy of your home. Cinefamily has a secret for you… maybe, just maybe, some of those videos you enjoyed from the comfort of your couch were shot on FILM, despite being destined for lowly home television presentation, and since that bygone golden era have somehow survived. We searched private collections and archives world-wide to put together the rarest of programs, in what is perhaps the first-ever show of music videos entirely on irresistible 35MM! Come check out these gems on the big screen, many for the first and only time.
