Location: 600 4th St, West Sacramento - that's the corner of 4th & F in West Sacramento, just over the river from downtown.
Producers Gustavo Albero and Mike Verna traveled thousands of miles to examine people from every corner of the United States, all of whom produce televison programs for their local public access stations. At times profane and obscene, "Access Nation" provides a look at some of the variety produced by local people and what they are like on and off the camera, and the one thing in common they all share: the importance of public access as the last bastion of free speech in broadcasting.
Features Harry Lime, The Three Geniuses (with Don Bolles from The Germs), Bryan Singer, Johnny White, Al Goldstein, Ron Jeremy, Giddle Partridge, Francine Dancer, and many others.
Please note: the film is unrated and does contain some "strong content." Additionally, quality varies due to the vast amount of assembled footage from public access shows from around the country.
Ron Cooper, Executive Director of Access Sacramento is planned to be in attendance at this screening to discuss the state of public access today.
Digital projection on to a large screen. Seating is mostly on folding chairs. Feel free to bring a pillow or cushion (or even your own chair).
