A double-bill of sharp, funny New York films about how the media infects our lives, both capturing the unease and paranoia of the late 60s.
David Holzman’s Diary presents itself as the work of a young man determined to record everything in his life before he gets drafted to Vietnam. In The Secret Cinema a woman begins to suspect that her every move is under surveillance, until one night she happens on a packed-out picturehouse where her worst fears are realised.
