RiP: A Remix Manifesto


I recently had the pleasure of watching RiP: A Remix Manifesto, a documentary about culture, copyright, and creativity in the 21st century directed by Canadian filmmaker Brett Gaylor. The main focus of the film is Girl Talk, a mash-up artist, though you will also hear from Lawrence Lessig, co-founder of the Creative Commons (and a huge inspiration of mine), and Boing Boing co-editor Cory Doctorow. Copyright law might seem like a dry subject but the visual presentation of this film is positively electric—you won’t be bored!

Watch the entire documentary at the National Film Board of Canada, YouTube, or Vimeo.
