From the Archives of Vidéo Populaire

From the Archives of Vidéo Populaire




The four founders of a video production centre that started up in the 1970s share their experiences in this fictional 'oral history.' The founders are joined by dozens of artists who recount their impressions of Vidéo Populaire, based in Montreal. A moving engagement with the question of what makes a his/story, the reminiscences found in From the Archives of Vidéo Populaire create a contradictory and sometimes terrifically funny archive of people, their affairs and the events that beset them.
