Parcels labeled like this or similarly, carry, among other contents,  
our video works and films to be viewed by the Festival audience.  
Sending parcels online has become very common for speed and  
convenience, if not reliability. It is only up to your bandwidth how  
much data you can download, legally or otherwise. I wouldn’t go into  
the recurring issues of censorship or copyright (they come back to  
life like characters in horror movies). Whether the labelling is  
correct or not, the declared Zero value of a film or video puts their  
authors into the group of romantic-idealist losers, incapable of  
making money and forever maintained, handicapped from the outset by  
the fact that their brain-child is not really wanted in the wide world  
of trade policy. I bet there is no film maker who would object to a  
new, less deprecating label without the Zero value attached to a  
possible master-piece!?! Unlike labels on bottles of sugar-free  
carbonated water (stuffed with deadly sweeteners). Here are some  
recommendations for labelling parcels with video or film contents:

1. C’est Ne Pas Une Pipe
2. Dangerous Works of Art!
3. Beware of The Artist!
4. Caution, Art!
5. Unbreakable!!!!
6. All Four Sides Up (marked with arrows)

The correct label would read: Value-Unknown!
