NEGATIVLAND: Our Favorite Things (+ bonus CD by 180-Gs)


Seeland DVD + Bonus CD "180 d’Gs to the Future" by the 180 Gs

OUR FAVORITE THINGS is a new DVD/CD project from reigning Kulture Kut-up Kings Negativland, co-released by Seeland MediaMedia and San Francisco’s Other Cinema DVD . It is NTSC, region 0, and is playable worldwide.

Twenty-seven years of the group’s "greatest hits" have 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, guns, fear, suicide, cola wars, mental illness, and intellectual property issues with the lighter side of dopey advertising, cartoon characters, cleaning products and Jesus.

The OUR FAVORITE THINGS DVD includes over 60 minutes of never-before-seen bonus material, and, for those who would rather shut their eyes tight and just listen, it also comes with a full-length CD which isn’t by Negativland at all: "180 d’Gs to the Future!" by the a capella Gospel R & B Doo-Wop group, The 180-Gs. You’ll be all ears as this talented posse from inner Detroit sings out heavenly cover versions of Negativland’s best (and least) known cut-up collage work from throughout their career, making for one of the strangest recordings you have ever heard.

This is an epic career-spanning project from Negativland, "sure to please their old fans," sez Dr. Wick Milton, D.D.S., of our Appropriation Assessment Department. And yet this DVD, released in cooperation with San Francisco’s Other Cinema DVD, also provides an expansively overdue introduction to Negativland’s work for new audiences who have not yet discovered them.

Includes newly minted video versions of: Time Zones • Christianity Is Stupid • No Business • Gimme The Mermaid • Greatest Taste Around • Over The Hiccups • U2 • Guns • Yellow, Black And Rectangular • Aluminum or Glass • Favorite Things • Taste In Mind • Truth In Advertising • Humanitarian Effort • Drink It Up • Freedom’s Waiting • Why Is This Commercial? • No Business • and much, much more!
