Join us at the Brooks for RIP: A Remix Manifesto, a film that provides an interesting perspective into the idea war . Filmmaker and activist Brett Gaylor created, along with several others, a documentary that evaluates whether or not information via internet is fair game for appropriation.
Gaylor displays how copyright in the information age is not parallel with the laws available to protect users against those who may be taking their ideas, images, or text. The band Girl Talk is at the center of the film to represent the remix culture that spawned in the early age of hip-hop.
Who do you think needs to be protected, or is everything accesible? This film approaches a controversial, but fun topic that will definitely give you something to chew on.
“Gaylor cohesively and emotionally discusses the sweeping topics of intellectual property and remix culture.” – Indiewire
