Project #1: Kino Pravda 3G

Public Studio with Eshrat Erfanian, Zev Farber, John Kamevaar

Kino Pravda 3G #1-4

Kino Pravda 3G brings together current images of global discontent. While mainstream media builds grand narratives around riots with its slick and repetitive images, mobile phones, in the hands of protestors, allow for the narration of personal stories. Public Studio scours Youtube for found footage to retell these stories in a serial format, much like Vertov’s original newsreels, blurring the boundaries between propaganda and art.
