Series 4 of Beneath Detroit, Prismatic music is an astonishing Blu-Ray release of 40 Super 8 films by Detroit filmmaker Joseph Bernard.

These films cover the period of 1975-85 in Detroit, Provincetown and Chicago, and now reside in The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Collection. Transferred from original film source material in 2K at the prestigious Cinelicious Hollywood, this project offers 6 hours of film, filmmakers notes, critical assessments, past show announcements and stills in a 24 page booklet.
