Luz del Día: Copyrighting the Light of Day

This project is in direct reaction to Bill No. 2517-D-2015 that would extend Argentinian copyright from 20 years post-production to 70 years post-mordem, erasing all images of the Argentine Dirty War. Recent documents released by the Obama administration reveal Argentine dictator Videla telling secretary of state Henry Kissinger the deaths would “never see the light of day.” Estefaní Mercedes re-copyrights (and preserves) the light of day from the images that would be erased if the bill passed.
