Les Années Scopitones – Jukebox Movies from the 1950s & 1960s

Short url: 


Scopitone-Clips (1958-1978), predecessors of MTV music videos were played on coin-fed jukebox-like devices featuring built-in monitors. One could find them in train stations, bars and other public places. They typically featured footage shot on one location, in leftover scenographies of feature films, in forests or in front of shabby wallpapers. You can experience original 16mm analogue copies feat. the easy listening sound of Sylvie Vartan, Petula Clark, Dalida, Debbie Reynolds, Claude Francois, Danyel Gérard, Bobby Vee, The Kessler twins among many others. Lean back, relax dance and enjoy sweet swingin’ mondo bizarro of Scopitone madness!

Introduction with Bernd Brehmer of Werkstattkino Munich!
