Synopsis

RiP! A Remix Manifesto
Filmmaker and Web activist Brett Gaylor explores copyright issues in the information age in this documentary focusing on the controversy surrounding Girl Talk, a popular mash-up artist who takes existing songs and transforms them into something fresh and original. By the mere act of creating his popular, sample-based songs, Girl Talk has incurred the wrath of copyright lawyers across the world. While some celebrate Girl Talk as a true pop-culture innovator, others condemn him as a 21st Century media outlaw. But reality is never as simple as black and white, as viewers quickly discover through interviews with such cultural critics as Creative Commons founder Lawrence Lessig, Brazilian Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil, and BoingBoing.net founder Cory Doctorow. As the lines of battle are drawn in the sand, everyone will be forced to choose a side. The world's first "open source" documentary, RiP: A remix manifesto was created in part by movie lovers and music fans, who were encouraged to remix raw film footage posted by the director on opensourcemedia.com. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
