A wonderful sampling of ten years of myth-smashing television from Herb Schiller to Archie Singham to Joan Braderman. Since 1981, Paper Tiger Television has been raising the same crucial question: “it’s 8:30, do you know where your brains are?” This show features segments from Paper Tiger’s ten-year history of media art, activism and critical, ruthless analyses of the information industry. As Amy Taubin from The Village Voice claims, “Paper Tiger’s roster of guests includes an amazing array of media-conscious stars and supporting players on the left.”_ Amy Taubin, The Village Voice. Speakers ranging from Serafina Bathrick, Armond White, Terry Odendahl, Page DuBois, Renee Tajima, Martha Roster to Bob Edelman question and debunk the many myths of mass media, while empowering audiences worldwide.
