In her second guest blog post, feminist video remixer Elisa Kreisinger highlights her choice for fair use video of the month:
In 2005, a series of protests and “riots” erupted outside Paris in response to the electrocution of two North African boys during a police chase. Upset by how the mass media portrayed the incident, a 27 year old gamer named Alex Chan created a short video about the event from the prospective of frustrated Asian, Arab and African immigrant youth in France using machinima, a form of DIY filmmaking that uses virtual video game environments and in-game characters to tell new narratives.

Why It's Fair Use: This video quotes from the original source in order to recombine elements and make a new work that depends for its meaning on (often unlikely) relationships between elements.
