      EVENT DETAILS
      Indie Lens Pop-Up Screening: "Recorder: The Marion Stokes Story"

      A mystery wrapped inside a time capsule, Recorder tells the story of Marion Stokes, a radical Communist activist who later became a wealthy reclusive archivist. For 30 years, she secretly recorded TV 24 hours a day, starting in 1979 with the Iranian hostage crisis and ending on December 14, 2012, when she passed away while news of the Sandy Hook massacre played on television. In between, Marion recorded 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows and commercials that tell us who we were and how television shaped the world of today. Before “fake news,” Marion was fighting to protect the truth by archiving everything she possibly could. Following the screening, a panel discussion will feature Stevi Breshears (former AC Ranger editor), Walt Howard (KFDA Newschannel 10 anchor/managing editor), Jackie Kingston (KAMR Local 4 News anchor/executive producer) and Paul Matney (retired educator/broadcaster).
