Join the fiercely independent documentary filmmaker Penny Lane (Hail Satan?) for a Masterclass that explores the aesthetic and ethical dilemmas in found footage filmmaking.
“We live in a world full of images – so full it can seem rather stupid to add even more to the deluge. In this masterclass Penny Lane argues for the idea that artmaking in modernity is more about the curation of attention than some supernatural act of creation, and shares some practical, aesthetic and ethical conclusions she has drawn from a long career of appropriating extant images in myriad ways.” -Penny Lane
