Gig Stream Platform Expands Its Offering With Video Content For Underground Film
Self-titled "the Netflix of the underground," the new service from Boiler Room will be curated by creative industry leaders like Elijah Wood, and aims to give more marginalized filmmakers a chance to speak
Independent entertainment outlet Boiler Room has announced 4:3, a streaming service it is calling “the Netflix of the underground.” The content available will cover all genres and remain true to the anti-establishment, club culture aesthetic and mission of Boiler Room. The content will be curated by a cast of creative characters, from actor Elijah Wood to composer Ryuishi Sakamoto, and will be available for viewing to 4:3 members.
Boiler Room is hitting the ground running with the new service and is keeping its club culture roots in tact by showcasing the uncanny and curious. To kick off 4:3, the brand will be arranging a tribute exhibition for the avant-garde musician Arthur Russell entitled “Swimming with Arthur Russell.” This exhibition will be in partnership with the New York Public library and will serve as a look inside of Russell’s previously unseen life.
The exhibition will run from May 30th until June 3rd and will culminate with “Wild Combination,” a documentary about the life and times of Arthur Russell. 4:3 not only allows Boiler Room to offer its consumers a wider array of innovative content, but also provides important visibility to lesser-known creatives in filmmaking.
