Exploring the nature of free will, DisObey questions our individual and collective social responsibility within the construct of our current legal system. The film is narrated by criminologist Jason Warr and set to archive and recent footage of public protests. Jason calls for a re-ordering of society: a recognition that we need to change our thinking and behavior radically to create a society that is truly fair and just for all.
DisObey is a new film by Jordan Baseman made as a result of his Lincoln Voices residency at the University of Lincoln’s Law School.
Frequency Festival is working with Lincoln Voices and 1215.Today in partnership with the University of Lincoln to highlight Lincoln’s connection to Magna Carta and The Charter of the Forest through intriguing artistic interventions that will stimulate curiosity and debate around the big issues of today.
Jordan Baseman is a visual artist and filmmaker. He received a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and an MA from Goldsmith’s College, University of London.
Recorded interviews, observations and archival material are the core research and impetus that Jordan uses to create narrative based, non-fiction single screen films, sound works and moving-image based installations/artworks. Challenging existing opinions, ideas and upheld beliefs to create new stories and narrative is integral to his work.
