Final Cut is a so-called educational film directed by György Pálfi and produced by Béla Tarr for the Budapest Film University, where it is used regularly as a teaching aid. The film has attracted huge critical attention and was selected to be the closing gala screening of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.  It serves as a template for our collective film, Poetic Justice (working title), also in terms of copyright and distribution issues. The student “meme-scripting” group will work parallelly all during the week with the help of remote participants, who will send memes from the films for the various basic dramaturgical elements determined by the scriptwriters. This group will report back to the film school each day.
