 Public Welcome -- Admission Free

 Join producer Kembrew McLeod and legendary remixer Steve Steinski
 Stein, the inspiration for many recent artists including Girl
 Talk, for a Q&A session after the screening.

 We are thankful that Kembrew (yes, the same prankster professor
 who trademarked "Freedom Of Expression" and went after AT&T for
 using the term in an ad) is giving us the opportunity to screen
 this film so shortly after its successful run at the Film Forum.

 Public Welcome  Admission Free

 Producers Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeod craft a compelling
 and insightful documentary illuminating both sides of a hotly
 debated issue: Should the original artists get paid when someone
 samples their work? Are current copyright laws out of step with
 our mashed up, high tech culture?  --USAToday

 "Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeods 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."
