Steal These Films - Mechanical Eye Microcinema
STEAL THESE FILMS
Introduction and Q & A by Mark Hosler of Negativland
This screening will consist of shorts that appropriate images and sound into videos with new meanings and messages that subvert mainstream media culture. Including found footage, corporate monolith cartoon characters, vidding, clips of documentaries about copyright and remix culture, and a pinch of North Korean propaganda parody.
One night is not enough time to throughly represent the history of appropriation in film, however, we will give you a taste of the process and legal challenges over recent decades. We hope, after viewing, you will feel compelled to steal some footage and make your own re-mix masterpiece.
