RANSOM NOTES

by Kelly EGAN
2011 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 5' 00

The ransom note, in our collective imagination, is an interesting entry point to the politics of ownership, freedom and exchange value, made by transforming mass media (newspapers) content into a personal message – the re-appropriation of language and meaning through the act of collage. RANSOM NOTES explores this as a means of sorting out the filmmaker’s experience of feeling hijacked during the Toronto G20 Summit and subsequent riots of June 2010.
