the fabulous ubuweb is back! unfortunately, the wonderful film section they had planned has been put on hold because they received so many complaints from filmmakers and/or the copyright holders of the work. it’s a real shame too, because most, if not all, of what they had available is very hard to see. there’s been a raging debate over on the frameworks mailing list about the pros and cons of this move. i of course side with those against the removal of the films – especially since for some of these films it’s more than likely that i’ll never have the chance to see them. it’s not like i live in nyc or some city where experimental film screenings are a common occurence.
