Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project

This event is in the past
On Demand through Feb 28
This is an online event ยท Northwest Film Forum
Just as the 24-hour news cycle was taking hold, Marion Stokes, whose formative years were shaped by the civil rights era, obsessively recorded TV coverage of the 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis, which led to a reclusive life of obsession with TV news. Matt Wolf's documentary parses through the near-70,000 VHS tapes that Stokes kept.
