Un film documentar despre EZTV, un colectiv de regizori/activişti culturali queer, fondat în 1979, în West Hollywood,California, de către John Dorr.
Founded by John Dorr in 1979, EZTV was an artist-run space in West Hollywood dedicated to the presentation and production of alternative video projects. Perhaps the country’s first micro-cinema dedicated exclusively to video, EZTV’s early, predominately queer members produced numerous video projects from campy shorts to feature-length docs to experimental video installations.
Long before The Blair Witch Project, John Dorr took a B&W serveillance camera and Betamax deck and made what was probably the first feature length film on video. This half-hour documentary looks at the movies he made and the work created at EZTV, the video arts center founded by John.
