$100 & a T-Shirt, an original documentary by Joe Biel, illuminates the world of self-publishing and serves as a cultural analysis of what makes the thriving sub-culture of zinesters tick. Biel interviews about 70 zine makers, ex-zine makers, and readers from the northwest - all quirky and artistic young people who produce hand-crafted magazines which run the gamut from artistically ornate polemics to minimalist whimsical rants. They discuss the impetus to create zines, their genesis, self-publishing history, intricacies of the zine community, resources available for zine makers, and the genre's future. He gives us glimpses of the Portland Zine Symposium and takes us on a zine-themed bicycle tour around Portland. The program relays the sheer energy behind this DIY movement and offers interested viewers the nuts and bolts of small-scale publishing.
