Those Are Your Words, Not Mine: Panel Discussion with The Gregory Brothers and Cliff Roth

Ongoing

Followed by a reception for Cut Up

Filmmaker Cliff Roth and musical group The Gregory Brothers will discuss how they reappropriate speech by politicians and newscasters for playful and incisive criticism.

The multi-talented The Gregory Brothers turn current events and viral videos into music videos. Their popular series “Auto-Tune the News” employs auto-tune filters to render politicians and newscasters into unlikely singers.

Cliff Roth is best known for his underground VHS phenomenon “The Reagans Speak Out On Drugs” (1988), a re-editing of the famous “Just Say No” speech by Nancy and Ronald Reagan from 1986. Roth teaches communication at SUNY Cortland.

Free admission.
