Re: [ARSCLIST] "The Archive" Documentary

I think a version of this film was on YouTube a while back but they may have added some scenes, I don't recall the wife-getting-teary scene for instance.

As I understand it, this guy's collection is not worth $50 mil or $3 mil for that matter and he won't sell it for what it's worth so he's stuck with it. That's the gist I get from all the various web postings and articles about it.

One thing's for sure, none of us can take any of it with us when the time comes.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] "The Archive" Documentary

While in DC at the ARSC Conference I picked up a schedule for the American
Film Institute. The listing for 6/17/09 has a feature documentary on
hip-hop  sampling but the short before that caught my eye. It's called "The
Archive" and  is about Paul Mawhinney's collection and his trying to sell it. I
thought it was  the one that was on ebay (the film) when he tried to sell it
but after watching  it, I'm not sure.

It was done by someone other than Paul. It's available to watch on Vimeo
and I think it's worth your time to watch it. It's only 7 minutes.

Here is the link:

Put together with Leah Biel's new hour long documentary, it paints an
interesting picture of "collecting" and "commerce".

Paul is an ARSC member.
