Good Copy Bad copy
Date: Thursday, June 19 2014
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Time: 7.30 pm
Admission: free

The TEN CITIES Screening Series continues this month with Good Copy Bad Copy (2007 / 60min) by Andreas Johnson, Ralf Christensen and Henrik Moltke, a documentary about copyright and culture in the context of internet.

It features interviews with many people and their various perspectives on copyright, including copyright lawyers, producers, and artists from countries like United States, Sweden, Russia, Nigeria, and Brazil.

A central point of the documentary is the thesis that “creativity itself is on the line”, and that a balance needs to be struck, or that there is a conflict between protecting the right of those who own intellectual property, and the rights of future generations to create.

The TEN CITIES Screening Series presents numerous feature films and documentaries, focusing on different aspects of club and sub-culture around the globe.

For 20 years, a subculture has grown under society’s radar in the hills of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is the culture surrounding “Funk Carioca”, a musical rhythm which mixes American electronic funk sounds of the 1980s with all the diverse influences of Brazilian music. “Funk Carioca” or “Baile Funk” is one of the most interesting musical movements in the world, but it comes from what is at times one of the most violent and poorest places in the world: the slums of Rio de Janeiro (favelas). This documentary tells stories of sex, love, poverty, and pride among Rio’s marginalized people. It’s a film that’s fast, heavy, and violent like the city itself.
