FLIX REMIX: THE UNDERGROUND CINEMA OF CRAIG BALDWIN

FRI, FEB 24 / 7 pm
SAT, FEB 25 / 7 pm
Introduced by Craig Baldwin

Underground San Francisco filmmaker Craig Baldwin is a pioneering found footage artist working in the field of collage and appropriated imagery. Using scenes from mass media, pop culture, and educational films he creates fantastic satirical gems which break down the barrier of traditional cinema.

As a visiting guest artist, he will introduce two nights of his classic works and deliver a workshop which explores working creatively with found footage.

FRI FEB 24 – 7:00 PM
TRIBULATION 99: ALIEN ANOMALIES UNDER AMERICA
DIR. CRAIG BALDWIN | 1991 | USA | 48 MIN
A mélange of satire, political fantasy, and black comedy, upon its release in 1991, Tribulation 99 became an instant counter-culture classic. Tribulation 99 is obsessively organized into 99 paranoid rants, parlaying every imaginable scrap of “found” footage, re-filmed TV, and industrial sound into a revisionist history of alien intervention in Latin America.

Sat Feb 25 at 7:00 PM
SONIC OUTLAWS
DIR. CRAIG BALDWIN | 1995 | USA | 87 MIN
Sonic Outlaws explores the artist culture of appropriating images, culture jamming and defying copyright. Within days after the release of Bay Area recording and performance group Negativland’s clever parody of U2 and Casey Kasem, recording industry giant Island Records descended upon the band with a battery of lawyers intent on erasing the piece from the history of rock music. Baldwin follows this and other intellectual property controversies across the contemporary arts scene. Playful and ironic, his cut-and-paste collage-essay surveys the prospects for an “electronic folk culture” in the midst of an increasingly commodified corporate media landscape.
