The final event in the fall F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series will take place on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 2 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ, when filmmaker Penny Lane presents The Pain of Others and Dean Fleischer-Camp’s Fraud. The event is free and open to the public.
Over the years, filmmakers have “recycled” films made by others into new works of their own—sometimes as a way of critiquing earlier ideas, assumptions, and films, sometimes as a way of being filmmakers without substantial financial resources.
One of the new “archives” for filmmakers looking to work with “found-footage” is YouTube, and similar sites, where video-posters put their own videos on-line for others to see.
Penny Lane is among the filmmakers who have mined YouTube. She will present her new “recycled” film, along with Fleischer-Camp’s most recent film.
