ARSC New York Chapter
December 2009 Meeting
FEATURING LEAH BIEL,
WHO WILL INTRODUCE HER DOCUMENTARY FILM
“For the Record”
As the daughter of Mike Biel, an extraordinarily enterprising “omnivore”
collector and major ARSC presence, Leah has grown up with and developed an
unusually keen appreciation of the collector’s personality and
foibles. “For the Record” is a one-hour video documentary that examines the
activity of record collecting from a positive view of 16 collectors, many
of whom are ARSC members. Traveling from Toronto to Texas, from Connecticut
to Kentucky, I visited most of the collectors in their home base where you
will see them, their collections, and even some archival footage from ARSC
conventions past. The video was done as my thesis for the Master of Fine
Arts degree at Brooklyn College”.
Introduced at last spring’s ARSC Conference in Washington, D.C., “For the
Record” is both informative and richly entertaining.
