In 1990, Disneyland was Perfect


20th Dec, 2012

Chris Zabriskie is the narrator, editor and musical composer of this beautiful short film that revisits a childhood VHS tape which ‘miraculously never wore out’. Despite having never met Chris, he succeeds in making his memories completely meaningful for the rest of us. With his heartwarming narration interpreting those moments, he captures the poignant simplicity and magic of a place frozen in time. You forget it’s on VHS, become completely unaware of the medium and allow yourself to be entranced in the magic of the imagery, the happiness and the familiarity of the memories that are being re-lived.

Caution: This VHS tape will provoke emotions.

Give Chris some love on Facebook.
