Paper Tiger Television

Paper Tiger Reads Paper Tiger Television:
PTTV 25-Year Anniversary

"The media has become more doctrinaire and rigid, and more and more people are rightly seeking serious alternatives of the kind Paper Tiger has been providing so well." - Noam Chomsky

Los Angeles premiere | 2007, 45 min., DV
Jack H. Skirball Screening Series

Formed at the height of the Reagan era to "smash the myths of the information industry," Paper Tiger Television is a collective of artists and activists whose raucous public-access shows are some of the quirkiest and most compelling alternative media ever to hit the airwaves. PTTV now turns the cameras on itself and serves up a revelatory, hugely entertaining mosaic of archival footage, hand-crafted animations, video shorts, and interviews with media critics, historians and Tigers past and present -- among them, DeeDee Halleck, Jesse Drew, George Stoney, Dierdre Boyle and Mary Feaster. The piece will be followed by one of PTTV’s “classics,” Sock Ads: Judith Williamson Consumes Passionately in Southern California.

In person: Maria Juliana Byck, Jesse Drew

The Jack H. Skirball Screening Series is curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud
