UCLA Student Films: 1970s-1980s

The View
December 14, 2019 - 7:30 pm
Q&A with filmmakers Ron Birnbach, Rebecca Ring, Marcy Muray.

The 1970s-1980s. This period brought the advent of video technology, shaping students’ work in both access and style. By the late-1970s and into the 1980s many of these films could be seen on The View, an hour-long student-produced program from the school’s Motion Picture & Television Division, presented on Theta Cable’s public access channel.

There will be a 30-minute Q&A with filmmakers and intermission between Program 1 and 2.
