Founded by John Dorr in 1979, EZTV was an artist-run space in West Hollywood dedicated to the presentation and production of alternative video projects. Perhaps the country’s first micro-cinema dedicated exclusively to video, EZTV’s early, predominately queer members produced numerous video projects from campy shorts to feature-length docs to experimental video installations. This screening presents videos from the archives of EZTV, part of the collections at ONE Archives at the USC Libraries in the first ever ONE event outside of Los Angeles! Selected by ONE curator David Frantz in collaboration with Bradford Nordeen of Dirty Looks NYC.
