AroView: A winsomely absurd retro comedy shot entirely in VHS and Betacam, celebrating the nostalgia of video formats through the story of a 12-year-old boy who accidentally tapes over his parents wedding video. A love-letter to the “found footage” subgenre from director Jack Henry Robbins, the son of film icons Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins.
“The strangeness of the material isn’t VHYES’ primary attraction; it’s the atypical mode of storytelling and sense of sincerity.” ~Karen Han, Polygon
“Television is reality, and reality is less than television. And that is, by the end of the 72-minute-long VHYes’ gleefully immersive, intermittently profound “found footage,” a lesson Ralph osmotically absorbs through the VHS viewfinder of his life.” ~Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
