A stunning portrait of a lost community

This week, we’re continuing our series of videos that celebrate Media Burn’s upcoming ten year anniversary with another peek at the hard working people who make Media Burn possible.

Video Cataloger/Digitizer Andrew Seeder reflects on his 18 month-long experience watching hundreds of hours of videos: “It was the everyday life of the community that came across during those hours, and that’s exactly the kind of thing we’re going to be most interested in 50 years, 60 years, 100 years from now.”

This footage is from Voices of Cabrini by Ronit Bezalel. You can see all 60 hours of raw footage Andrew watched at Media Burn.

Every time we write a blog post, it is the culmination of dozens of hours of work by many people working to restore and digitize previously unseen and unplayable videotapes. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we are dependent on your generosity to be able to continue this work. Please contribute today.
