7PM Movie Screening: Copyright Criminals + Q&A with Producer Kembrew McLeod
Legendary remixer Steve “Steinski” Stein, the inspiration for many recent artists including Girl Talk, will join producer Kembrew McLeod for the Q&A session after the screening.
“Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeod’s exceptionally smart and energetic documentary lays out the complexities of sampling, artistic and political, legal and philosophical. Comprised of split screens, overlapping and overlaid sounds, an assemblage of images and noise, the movie effectively stages its argument even as it makes it.”
