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 The Syndicate meetings and 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.
