  • Wigstock: The Movie

    1987. USA. Directed by Tom Rubnitz. Documenting an early installment of the famous New York drag festival, this video was shot a decade before Rubnitz’s celebrated feature-length documentary on the same subject. Presenting the Wigstock festival during its original Tompkins Square Park era, the video combines live performance footage and off-stage interviews. 20 min.

  • Making the Scene

    1985. USA. Directed by Kim Gordon. Edited and photographed by Tony Oursler. Gordon’s short documentary captures life at the West 21 Street incarnation of Danceteria, the first club in Manhattan to play videos and have two separate DJs perform nonstop for 12 straight hours. 11 min.

  • This Is a History of New York

    1988. USA. Directed by Jem Cohen. Composed entirely from documentary street footage, Cohen’s experimental film takes viewers through New York City, from prehistoric times to the Space Age. 20 min.
