The mini-doc examines the lure of vinyl, VHS, tapes & film.

The always-wonderful PBS Off Book video series tackles media junkies' infatuation of physical media formats of our past. Interviews with musicians, filmmakers, and photographers explore why we often connect better to obsolete media, and how the analog formats affect the way we experience music, video, and images.
