Pas de résumé français disponible

"Over the course of three decades, reclusive activist and former TV producer Marion Stokes was secretly recording the 24-hour news cycle—around the clock, seven days a week, on multiple television stations. While networks were privately dumping their archives, she devoted herself to methodically amassing a staggering collection of 70,000 VHS tapes. The footage formed a subtly rebellious time capsule of how the world was framed, depicted and twisted amongst various broadcasts. This effort consumed her, resulting in her shutting out her own family in pursuit of the cause. Now, the work that became a damaging obsession will finally see the light of day, as all of her recordings are currently being digitized for free public access by the Internet Archive. In Recorder, her story is revealed alongside the footage she captured, giving a complex portrait of a radical activist and single-minded archivist."
