Rip! a remix manifesto ( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'
Last train home Gui tu lie che ( visu )

Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as an astonishing 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year's holiday. This mass exodus is the largest human migration on the planet, an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Working over several years in classic verite, Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades

Punk le vote! by Eric "Roach." Denis( visu )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in French and English and held by 119 libraries worldwide
Roach and Starbuck, two hardcore punks from Montreal, try to form their own political party but run out of time due to Canada's electoral process. Instead, they decide to campaign for political office as independent candidates. As they hit the campaign trail in one of Canada's wealthiest communities, each wants to do it his own way. While Roach proposes to reform our rotting electoral system, Starbuck's punk rock performance art is designed to shock the electorate into waking the fuck up. Roach mounts a media campaign proposing proportional representation; Starbuck campaigns door-to-door wearing a leather cape and a dildo, telling voters: "if you like it up the ass, vote Liberal." Anarchy or Federalism - what's the true path for a punk?
SPIT Squeegee Punks In Traffic by Daniel Cross( visu )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and French and held by 74 libraries worldwide
Roach has been living on the streets since age 14, he's rebellious, loud and defiant. As part of S.P.I.T., Roach has been given a camera to document his world. The footage he gets is urgent, because there's a war against squeegee kids. The RoachCAM is positioned behind enemy lines: living in derelict buildings, squeegeeing for money, being hunted by police. The viewer is forced to look at the living reality of Roach and his friends: Hungry on the streets in one of the world's most prosperous countries, classified as thugs, criminals, and enemies. These kids refuse to obey, assimilate, and conform to society's values - their beliefs and realities are scarred into their flesh in the form of piercing, tattoos, track marks, bruised veins, rotting teeth, gangrene, scurvy ... S.P.I.T. shatters the windshield between Us and Them. Roach's camera acts as the hammer: hard, forceful, direct; impacting with the force of an actual life. Daniel Cross' camera documents the impact: recording the reflections of individual lives, mirrored upon the shards of flying glass. This is a collaborative film that seizes Punk's "do-it-yourself" ethos. Local punkers Deadly Pale, Locos and others contributed guttural emotion to the soundtrack. Artist Rick Trembles supplied an apocalyptic animation sequence from Roach's imagination. Youth and rebellion fuel this film
