Rip in Pieces America
(CA 2009, 21 min)
Rip in Pieces America assembles homemade short videos that were flagged for their content and removed from the Internet shortly after. Working in a gray zone of copyright law, Dominic Gagnon presents the virtual testimonies of individuals who are all concerned with the future of the United States.
