Filmmaker Penny Lane presents “The Pain of Others” and Dean Fleischer-Camp’s “Fraud.”
Free and open to the public
Sunday, Dec. 2, at 2 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium in Hamilton’s Kirner-Johnson Building
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.
