Rad Poster for Rewind This! VHS Documentary

IPF Productions’ Rewind This! is “the definitive account of the home video revolution.”

Home video changed the way the world consumed films. The cultural and historical impact of the VHS tape was enormous. REWIND THIS! is a documentary that traces the ripples of that impact by examining the myriad aspects of art,technology, and societal perceptions that were altered by the creation of videotape.

The film is the first feature length effort from Austin, TX based IPF Productions, with shooting locations all over North America and abroad, including a two week stint in Japan. The team has spoken to filmmakers, studios, archivists, rental chain operators, personal collectors and media experts to create an overview of the video era that is both informative and celebratory. The film will premiere at SXSW Film Festival in Austin March 2013.

It features interviews with Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell), Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Frankenhooker), Shôko Nakahara (Tokyo Gore Police), Roy Frumkes (Street Trash), Charles Band (Puppetmaster), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), Lloyd Kaufman (Troma) and many more.
