Scratch Video – Revolution Remixed:
A post-modern call to battle, for our planet, for our communities, for our freedom

Join us for a screening of three radical remixes of popular Hollywood movies by local film makers. These brief, yet high impact culture jams address globalization, 9-11, war on terrorism, the industrial military complex, racism, consumer culture, business as usual, our disconnection with nature in favor of technology, and more. After the film, there will be a conversation between the film makers and the audience on the films, scratch video, and local action in Oakland.

The Fellowship of the Ring of Free Trade (6 minutes)

Now, for the first time ever, the hidden prophecies of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic epic, The Lord of the Rings, are decoded in this accurate re-edit of Peter Jackson's blockbuster motion picture. Unknownst to many readers, The Lord of the Rings - once thought to be merely a story of archetypal struggle between good and evil - has been found to contain astute prophetic messages about the impending crisis of capitalist modernity. The Fellowship of the Ring of Free Trade includes subtitles of the decoded dialogues in painstaking detail and the true identities that the story's characters represent within the prophecy.

The Twin Towers (15 minutes)

This sequel to The Fellowship of the Ring of Free Trade explores post-911 issues within Mordor (aka United States).

Sponsored by Post Carbon Institute, City Repair Oakland West, and st01en collective with the intention to connect with people interested in local action, scratch video, ecological building, post fossil fuel living, and other community projects in Oakland.
