"First in the United States to offer BA and MFA degrees in Video Art, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago has a critically important place in the history of this vital medium. SAIC instructor and digital systems specialist jonCates has delved into the School's archive of seminal video works, to recreate a fleeting moment in the development of a new art form. old skool revolutionaries is a conversation with the past, capturing the playful, freewheeling spirit of the days when new technology met with new ideas and everything was up for grabs. Featuring excerpts from videos, lectures, workshops and performances by Woody and Steina Vasulka, Gene Youngblood... and the late Phil Morton, charismatic video pioneer and one of the founders of the Video Data Bank and SAIC's video department. (Jim Trainor)"
