Golden Years DVD
Vaske’s Advertising Trilogy with Dennis Hopper on DVD
Hermann Vaske’s Emotional Network presents “The Golden Years of Advertising – The Roaring 90’s of Separating People From Their Money”.
It all began 1996 with “The World’s Bestsellers – The Fine Art of Separating People From Their Money”, 1998 followed by “The A-Z of Separating People from their Money”. In 2000 Vaske completed his trilogy with the film “The Ten Commandments of Separating People From Their Money”.
Hermann Vaske spent ten years making this chronicle, meandering the roads of postmodernity and surfing on the tidal wave of the McWorld where cash was king. He talked to advertising moguls like Frank Lowe, film directors like David Lynch, actors like Sean Penn, musicians like Bono and exceptional human beings like Nelson Mandela.
“The Golden Years of Advertising – The Roaring 90’s of Separating People from their Money” presents the highlights of his trilogy on DVD. It is an interesting reflection about the “Golden Age” of advertising. A visual and aural document of our primal culture, trade.
A creative as well as journalistic investigation, an enquiring and intriguing documentary on art and commerce, alternative and mainstream culture. A provocative debate that informs and entertains. Vaske: “I think like any other business it is the duty of an advertiser who makes a lot of money, to give something back to the people. And what they could give back is creativity. Why? Because there is already too much visual pollution.”
“The Golden Years of Advertising” is a chronicle that should find a place in libraries of every university available to all students to simply know what to do and what not to do, where to go and where not to go. The trilogy, that is originally nine hours long, was broadcast by ARTE, the European Cultural Channel. The “Best Of” entitled “The Golden Years of Advertising – The Roaring 90’s of Separating People from their Money” is produced by Hermann Vaske’s Emotional Network and Group.ie and is supported by ACHT Frankfurt, Schleuse 15 and Deli Pictures.
