"SONIC OUTLAWS" by Craig Baldwin
16mm transfer to DVD NTSC, 87min, 1995

Craig Baldwin (1952) is an American experimental filmmaker. He uses  
found footage and images from the mass media to undermine and  
transform the traditional documentary. He also manages Other Cinema  
(www.othercinema.com), a micro-cinema in San Francisco, and a DVD  
label with the same name.

In 1991, Negativland sampled an audiotape of Casey Kasem mixed with  
samples from a U2 song. In a highly publicized case, U2's label,  
Island Records, charged Negativland with copyright and trademark  
infringement for appropriating the letter U and the number 2, even  
though U2 had in turn borrowed its name from the Central Intelligence  
Agency spy plane.
Sonic Outlaws, is a fragmented, gleefully anarchic documentary  
approach to the Negativland / U2 incident, expanding upon the ideas  
behind Negativland's guerrilla recording tactics.

"Here is your chance for an obnoxious and appropriate response to  
corporate music greed."

Mark Hosler  from Negativland,  will kindly  introduce the film. And  
will answer questions after the screening.
