Will Be Televised

This series of tapes from five different parts of Asia offers a window on these movements. Each one hour tape illustrates Asia's struggles for freedom of expression and democracy from the perspectives of regional video makers, artists and activists: "Until Daybreak" (Korea); "A Legacy of Violence"(The Philippines); "The Generation After Martial Law"(Taiwan); "Only Something That is About to Disappear Becomes an Image" (Hong Kong); "Presenting River Elegy" (China). [Distributed in five separate tapes]
In 5 separate tapes. Prices quoted are for a single tape. Rental is $85.00 per tape. Purchase is $225.00 per tape. Inquire for purchase.
Reviews
"Tapes that reflect an astonishing variety of styles...The work is both self-reflexive and defiant, speaking both to media practices in home countries and to political and social conditions under or misrepresented in Western media." - Claire Aguilar, AFTERIMAGE
