Repressed Cinema: Boob Tube Shrapnel
Repressed Cinema presents this special 16mm program!
massive Portland vaults, curator Ian Sundahl presents an insane mash-up
of vintage bizarre 16mm television. From TV favorites to things you
never knew existed, Sundahl brings a wide variety of the strangest TV
had to offer. Come see the most unique and oddball TV films from his
collection in a celebration of the old boob tube. Many of the subjects
in this show are one of a kind rarities Sundahl has found from a myriad
of sources. Highlights of the evening include the soft-rocking kids of
Teenage Party (1960s), the pool sharkery of Minnesota Fats and Billiards
with the Stars (1970s), a bizarre segment of KPTV in the Morning
(1960s), bloopers from the short-lived sitcom Busting Loose (1977), an
afterschool special with Dana Plato: A Step in Time (1981), rare promos
for the Jeffersons, and see "moralist" Anita Bryant - the FIRST person
to get "pied" on live television!
Also included are trailers for
movies you won't believe were advertised on tv, a strange A-1 Steaksauce
commercial that has the potential to make a diehard vegan upchuck, the
bizarre social psychology of devils & angels, and more!!!
