Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector

Dan Kinem, Levi Peretic
USA 2013 / 86’

This nostalgia-filled documentary by Levi Peretic and Dan Kinem recalls the heyday of the home-video industry, including a look at its particular esthetics and technology. Interviews in the film with video professionals and hobbyists reveal a unique subculture of VHS lovers. For them, the value of a video cassette was not only the audiovisual content itself but, likewise, the specific features of the images produced by VCRs. They were interested not only in what they were watching but also in how a particular video looked. What makes this documentary exceptional is undoubtedly the passion with which the filmmakers approach an issue that, today, is primarily of interest to the film underground. The film includes an appearance by the legendary founder of the famous Troma Entertainment studio, Lloyd Kaufman.
