Black TV

USA, 1969 (MIFF 1970, American experiment)

Director: Aldo Tambellini

Vietnam, assassination, racial strife and police clashes are documented in a machine-gun succession of images photographed directly off the television screen to produce the unsettling atmosphere of violence and chaos that flickering TV images often transmit.
