4th Annual Anti-Corporate Film Festival: "RIP: A Remix Manifesto"
"RIP: A Remix Manifesto" explores the idea and application of copyright in the Information Age, as digital technology shatters the traditional wall between producers and consumers.
The film's protagonist is a "mash-up" musician known as Girl Talk who creates his art by chopping up and re-assembling other people's songs.
The film itself is a mash-up, as director Brett Gaylor made
his raw footage available for anyone to remix, and added footage from other people's films.
This participatory media experiment sounds an urgent alarm about saving our collective culture, and the limits of creative expression and freedom in the supposed "Land of the Free" (USA, 2008, 86 minutes).
