to make a feature length film in a week and show it to the public is a highly original idea. and to do so in a collective, marxist work structure where everyone involved in the making is a filmmaker and has equal rights in the decision making process is a new perspective in filmmaking, if it works or not is something else. the mike figgis audio comments alone make this dvd worth watching, everything he has to say about filmmaking is worth listening to if one is interested in films. all the participants are interesting to observe while doing their thing, some are more outgoing others do their thing in a quite way. there are some parts here that seem to long but seeing it as what it was, a masterclass for young filmmakers and as an experiment, a lecture and a documentary of work in process, Co/Ma is defenetly cool. In some original sources all participants share all credits, so this is not a Mike FIggis Film, its a film with and by co/ma (cooperative marxists).
