Commercial Cinema: 1980s TV Ads on the Big Screen

This Super Bowl eve, Jump Cut and Flea Market Films will spend an evening looking at that lowliest form of moving image: the television commercial. Included will be the complete 1986 Clio Awards reel, pioneering video artist Joan Logue's "30-Second Spots" (each one a puzzling portrait of a famous avant-garde artist), and a selection of vintage 16mm consumer awareness films that both exalt and critique the medium of the TV commercial. Joan has graciously agreed to participate in a Skype discussion after the show. Doors open at 7, projectors roll at 7:30.
