EAI presented a special screening of Arthur Ginsberg and Video Free America's The Continuing Story of Carel and Ferd (1970-75), a remarkable work of early video verité that focuses on the unconventional union of Carel Rowe and Ferd Eggan, two self-proclaimed "freaky people" attempting to conform to the norms of American domestic bliss. The Continuing Story..., which has been newly preserved, was prescient in provoking questions about the veracity and objectivity of a live-in camera and crew, pre-dating the ubiquity of reality television by at least three decades.
