Pixel Pirate 2: A Video Remix Space Epic
Travel into the outer realms of remix culture with video artists Soda_Jerk - join the duo for a screening of their video remix project Pixel Pirate 2: The Director's Cut.
In this intergalactic epic, a team of space pirates battle the evil tyrant Moses and his copyright commandments. Comprised entirely of audiovisual samples, the film stars Elvis Presley, The Hulk, Batman, Luke Skywalker, Rambo, Lara Croft, The A-Team, Captain Jack Sparrow, NASA and the Ghostbusters.
First released in 2006, Pixel Pirate 2 has been re-edited and re-envisaged for the 2011 Director's Cut. A Q&A will follow the screening, in which Soda_Jerk will talk science fiction, sampling and cinema. Snacks will be provided.
Soda_Jerk is a collaboration between sisters Dan and Dominique Angeloro, who have worked together since 2002. They are based in Berlin and Sydney.
