Documentary on VHS Culture Screening in Chattanooga
A new documentary called Rewind This! explores the rise and fall of VHS and the nostalgia of the format in the 21st century. The film will be screened at Barking Legs Theater Friday night.
If you were born in the 90s or before, you may have fond memories of the VHS tape and video stores. Before Netflix, before streaming, the magic of cinema was brought into your home through video rental and home video purchases. Rewind This! director Josh Johnson says, "the home video revolution and the impact of the video tape is something that, if presented in the right way, can be meaningful to a lot of people."
