Hollywood Burn (trailer)


01min.

    Trailer for Hollywood Burn, an anti-copyright epic which is a manifesto against the corporate control of cultural history. Mimicking the hyperbolic rhetoric of today's copyright cops, this 52 minute work pits a righteous league of video pirates against the evil tyrant Moses and his copyright commandments. Determined to alter the present by changing the past, the pirates travel back to 1955 to construct the ultimate weapon: an Elvis Presley video-clone. Plundered from hundreds of sources, this video project adopts the tactical responses of the parasite, feeding off the body of Hollywood and inhabiting its cinematic structures and codes. More than just an indictment of intellectual property law, Hollywood Burn is also a speculative history of sampling practices, stretching from the avant-guarde to the online remix.
