Bringing IT to YOU (NR, 60 min.) and Suicide Box (NR, 13 min.) are two videos that investigate corporate sabotage and the confused role of technology in contemporary culture. The ®TMark documentary reveals the philosphophy and tactics of this underground group, which is responsible for such actions as the Barbie Liberation Organization (which switched talking Barbies with G.I. Joe voiceboxes) and the notorious GWbush.com. “Suicide Box” is about the Bureau of Inverse Technology’s vertical-trigger photographic device that captures a video record of anything that falls off the Golden Gate Bridge, thereby providing an accurate measure of the suicide rate.
