In conjunction with the opening of EZTV: Video Transfer, ONE Archives presents a screening of numerous short video projects produced and screened at the alternative video space EZTV. The program takes its name from “EZTV Eye,” a multi-genre “video magazine” screening event held at EZTV during the early 80s. Characterized by a mix of video shorts and mock-news footage shot by EZTV members, “EZTV Eye” typified to space’s desire to cross contexts while promoting DIY video production. This screening at the West Hollywood Council Chambers will feature video projects from the EZTV Video Collection including works by Tery Arnold and Sherry BarnettT.
