Other Cinema DVD Releases Negativland's "Our Favorite Things"

(San Francisco, CA) OCD proudly announces the upcoming release of NEGATIVLAND’S “OUR FAVORITE THINGS”. This DVD/CD release from America’s reigning Kulture Kut-up Kings will be available on November 20, 2007.

Twenty-seven years of the group's "greatest hits" become all-new moving pictures in this amazing, years-in-the-making package. Created with 18 other filmmakers from all over the USA (and one a capella group from Detroit), "OUR FAVORITE THINGS" is a collaborative project that takes Negativland's sound explorations into the world of film and video. What emerges is a darkly cracked look at 21st century America, juxtaposing paranoia, torture, control, power, weapons, fear, suicide, cola wars, mental illness, and intellectual property issues with the lighter side of dopey advertising, cartoon characters, cleaning products and Jesus.

“Declared heroic by their peers for refashioning culture into what the group considers to be more honest statements, Negativland suggests that refusing to be original, in the traditional sense, is the only way to make art that has any depth within commodity capitalism...”
- The New York Times

“Negativland isn't just some group of merry pranksters; its art is about tearing apart and reassembling found images to create new ones, in an attempt to make social, political and artistic statements. Hilarious and chilling.” - The Onion

“Negativland, longtime advocates of fair use allowances for pop media collage, are perhaps America's most skilled plunderers from the detritus of 20th century commercial culture...” - Wired Magazine

“Twisted genius...compelling.....parody and satire as a grass roots weapon of consumer resistance.”- Rolling Stone
