Here Come the Video­freex

BY SARAH BERMAN, THE TYEE

Over the weekend I submitted a “video pick” for an upcoming project that is becoming near and dear to my heart.

It’s a trailer for a documentary that aims to restore tapes from a countercultural video collective called the Videofreex. This gang of young New York artists was originally hired by CBS in ’69 to capture important moments in the youth movement. CBS didn’t like their stuff (too radical!) so they went on to start North America’s first pirate TV station.
