DOCLAB cordially invites you to the screening of Chain Camera by American director Kirby Dick. In this groundbreaking experiment in documentary filmmaking, ten students at a Los Angeles high school were given video cameras to film their lives. There were no limitations on what they could shoot. After one week, they each gave their camera to a friend, who filmed their life for a week, then again handed their camera on.
Like chain letters, these cameras circulated through the student body for an entire year. The final film, culled from over 700 hours of footage, is a riveting portrayal of contemporary urban teenage life. Shot in 1999 and foreshadowing YouTube, blogs, and other DIY media that has exploded throughout culture, CHAIN CAMERA is a raw, intimate and provocative look at the thoughts, fears, and experiences of a generation on the cusp of the new millennium.
Language: In English with Vietnamese subtitle.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
