On Friday, February 1st at 8:30PM at the Blinding Light in Vancouver, Canada, filmmaker David Yonge plans to break the law. In a program titled, “I’m Gonna Steal Your Movie!” the filmmaker plans to covertly videotape an afternoon screening of a Hollywood film then screen it at the Blinding Light the evening of its official premiere the same day (THIS evening) for FREE. Is he looking for trouble? You bet he is. In fact, he is going to let everyone know that he is doing this – including the Hollywood cinemas! Raising vital questions about authorship, copyright and Hollywood dollar value, expect a second generation copy of what will be yet another mediocre film churned out of a genuinely blandified entertainment industry.
DISCOVER what Dolby Digital Sound feels like once processed through the microphone on David’s camera! OBSERVE the wonders of videotaped film! SEE a few heads in the original audience block your view! And walk out knowing you’ve avoided the box office suckerpunch!
Hey, if he gets arrested, don’t say we didn’t tell you so. Way to stick it to the man!
To get more info, call 604-684-8288 or visit the The Blinding Light Cinema.
