New copyright documentary - free NYC screening, 1/31
Free Culture @ NYU is screening the new documentary by friend-of-Stay Free! Kembrew McLeod, Freedom of Expression®: Resistance and Repression in the Age of Intellectual Property, at 9pm on Thursday, January 31. Yours truly appears in the film as one of several copyfighting talking heads.
Narrated by Naomi Klein, the film features interviews with Stanford Law’s Lawrence Lessig, Illegal Art Show curator Carrie McLaren, Negativland’s Mark Hosler, [and] UVA media scholar Siva Vaidhyanathan....among many others. This 53-minute documentary will be preceded by selections from Negativland’s new DVD, Our Favorite Things, and it will be followed by a Q&A with Freedom of Expression® author and director Kembrew McLeod and co-producer Jeremy Smith.
