Abstract

In place of the de rigueur defense of independent film, Schamus contended that the IFP should defend independent expression more generally — fighting the extension of the conglomerates, supporting local distribution networks around the world, working to repeal parts of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. If this speech was the theory, the integration of Good Machine into Universal and the launching of Hulk were the practice.
