Riverwest Film & Video – Directed by Emir Cakaroz
“This documentary is about Riverwest Film & Video, which rents out DVDs and sells film equipment. It also hosts a neighborhood radio station which is open to anyone who wants to have a program. The documentary examines the regulars of the store and the radio programmers and their relationships with the place. The film is also an investigation of a space in which the public and the private merge.” – Emir Cakaroz
