Here’s what the Arts Picturehouse website has to say about the film:
Biomedical engineer turned live-performance sensation Girl Talk, has received immense commercial and critical success for his mind-blowing sample-based music. Utilizing technical expertise and a ferocious creative streak, Girl Talk repositions popular music to create a wild and edgy dialogue between artists from all genres and eras. But are his practices legal? Do his methods of frenetic appropriation embrace collaboration in its purest sense? Or are they infractions of creative integrity and violations of copyright?
I watched it a while back on the small screen, and I have yet to see a film that betters it at explaining the nuances of the copyright debate.
My aim will be to use the term “semiotic democracy” at least once. If you’re coming, and you hear me succeed, holler out.
