Anonymous homemade short videos carefully edited into a feature.
“I was watching video on the Internet and I noticed that certain homemade clips were flagged for their content. As they were disappearing from free hosting sites, I started to save and edit them in a capsule format. Working in a gray zone about copyright, I nevertheless fulfill the authors’ will to contextualize their situation by grouping their videos together and more important diffuse / preserve their messages.”
“When this thing goes down_ and the crack-down happens_ all this information that is on the internet_all these documentations_ not going to be there anymore, man_they are going to cut off the main frame_delete all this information_ that’s it_you’re not going to know anything.” RIP
Context: “We are reaping what has been sown, and the results of our harvest is_a painful bankruptcy, and a foreclosure on American property,_precious liberties, and a way of l i f e . Few of our elected_representatives in Washington, D.C. have dared to tell the truth. The_federal United States is bankrupt. Our children will inherit this_unpayable debt, and the tyranny to enforce paying it. America has_become completely bankrupt in world leadership, financial credit and_its reputation for courage, vision and human rights. This is an_undeclared economic war, bankruptcy, and economic slavery of the most_corrupt order! Wake up America! Take back your Country.” RIP
“I’ve never experienced this much emotional hysteria and conspiracy theory around an election!”RIP
