Hip Tags screening by Moving Image Research Collections

Discovered by an intern at the University of South Carolina Libraries' Moving Image Research Collections (MIRC), ‘Hip Tags’ is an intriguing orphan film mystery with 1970s Columbia, SC as its main character. Without any provenance and defying description, this hypnotic film was passed from MIRC to Historic Columbia where staff and volunteers began to sift through it in search of clues. Hip Tags: A Columbia Symphony is the first in a series of multimodal engagements with this archival material. It follows a long tradition of city symphony films by combining these historic Columbia cityscapes with a soundtrack by local musician Dan Cook (A Spot on the Hill) to give viewers a poetic look at the capital city nearly 50 years ago.
