As part of our Recycled Film programme, filmmaker Craig Baldwin led a five-day workshop for local artists and filmmakers. The workshop focused on using found 16mm film footage, with each participant encouraged to make a film in the five-days. The final films were screened at an event at Star and Shadow Cinema in May 2010.

Biography

Craig Baldwin is an American experimental filmmaker. He uses found footage from the fringes of popular consciousness as well as images from mass media to undermine and transform the traditional documentary, infusing it with the energy of high-speed montage and a provocative commentary that targets subjects from intellectual property rights to rampant consumerism. He founded the Other Cinema in San Francisco.
