Commercial Cinema: 1980s TV Ads on the Big Screen

Uploaded by MistaSparkle
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.
