Matt McCormick and Morgan Currie curate a media-archaeological treasure trove of dumpster-rescued 16mm reels containing commercials, PSA’s, and TV ephemera from a delirious decade of polyester and smiley faces.Here's a media-archaeological treasure trove of 16mm commercials,
PSA’s, and TV ephemera from that delirious decade of polyester
and smiley faces. From the classic iconography of the Marlboro
Man to the absurd pitches for Jack LaLanne's "Glamour Stretchers",
this outrageously retro review of candy-colored clips offers more
than campy fun. In fact, it allows us precious insight into a
lost, impossibly innocent world of fondly remembered looks, styles, and attitudes, from way back in the good ol' 20th Century.

of our disc is an amazing display of "recombinant" editing
and audio design. Six of today's savviest celluloid scavengers
take disposable industrial and educational films, and recycle
them into uncanny collages, from the ridiculous to the sublime.

flashback.” - Dennis Harvey, Variety
quaint to camp to absurd to preposterous,
these pop-ephemera artifacts invariably pose the same
puzzling question: What were they thinking?” -
