Steal This Station: The Videofreex and Radical Banality of Pirate Broadcasting A Review of "Here Come the Videofreex" by Jenny Raskin and John Nealon

Main Article Content

Kris Paulsen


In this review of the 2015 documentary, Here Come the Videofreex, the author questions Rasking and Nealon’s choice of a traditional chronological approach to a discussion of the importance of the Videofreex, particularly to our contemporary understanding of citizen journalism and the ubiquity of cameras in everyone’s back pocket. Instead, Paulsen asks questions about the importance of the Videofreex self-removal from mainstream media to rural New York and their relationship to other radical video collectives of the time.
