Telediario Montesol-Onliyou


In this film Video-Nou start from the premise that media of mass communication take shape in  confluence with the availability of specific technologies, and that they are organised and adopt specific hegemonic uses depending on the existing political power and economic structures in society. The piece (as all other films by Video-Nou of that time) shows that, indeed, there is a set of ideas and experiences of communication available to us that have been used critically in relation to the hegemonic organisations and uses, and which, in contrast to the latter, produce a contextual and heterogeneous communication that aims to reduce and even eliminate the separation-distinction between the emitter and the receiver.

Disguised as parody, Telediario Montesol-Onliyou [Montesol-Onliyou Newspaper] manage to bring us behind the scenes of television, and present it to us in a way unknown before, at least in Spain. The film is based on a radio script written and interpreted by the members of Video-Nou themselves.
