Alternative Cinema: The Festival of (In)Appropriation
Dir. various artists. 2013-6. 85 minutes.
The Festival of (In)appropriation is a showcase for experimental appropriation art. Exploiting and refashioning pre-existing materials, these films generate novel juxtapositions and recombinations, producing "inappropriate" meanings unintended and unimagined by the original makers. The ninth edition of the Festival features a riotous YouTube reaction video mash-up, an exquisite found-footage ready-made, a queer-Asian-American homage to Hollis Frampton, several sublime works of cut-out animation, and a pseudo-documentary about the lost work of an early-Soviet scientist dedicated to “human mental projection.”
