Quotes about Media Burn in 2015:
“…one of Chicago’s least noted yet most valuable archives.”
–Newcity, November, 2015, Chicago’s 50 screen gems.
“a vast archive of some 6,000 videos from the last four decades…when you visit, you should make sure that you have ample time to spare since you will likely get pleasantly lost in its wonderland of fascinating images…It has become a go-to site whenever a notable Chicagoan dies, because it provides compelling and enlightening afterlife.” –Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune
“Go there. Put anything in the search box and you’ll find video that you haven’t seen before. It’s a nonprofit and needs support from everyone who can appreciate the value of historical and cultural videos.”
“Since official histories are unreliable, collections like Media Burn are an essential and irrefutable bulwark against erasure and a repository of a unique style of storytelling.”
“There’s nothing else like it. Important for understanding the context of both video as a form and the history of the times. It’s useful for classes and for anyone who wants to learn or be amused. The variety of stuff is amazing.”
