Funhouse original -- Godard/Hartley montage

Straight from our recent Hartley interview episode part two, it's my little assemblage of clips from the films of Hal Hartley and their "sources," the work of the great Uncle Jean. Hal discussed how he feels artists have "conversations" in their work with their influences, so sit back and enjoy this "chat" between Hal and the legendary Jean-Luc.

Click here if the above doesn't work.

I came across your Hartley/Godard montage on youtube last year and I
loved it.
But when I tried to show it to a friend it had been removed.

Please upload your "little assemblage" again, as it is an obvious case of fair use.
Perhaps you could add a fair use comment to prevent a new removal.
Something like:

I will look for my original copy of this clip (at the time I write this, both my camera and computer are "in the shop," so my attentions have been elsewhere).

I'll try to put it back up -- I'm not sure which part of the clip caused the ruckus, since I don't know which of the films is owned by UMG. Copyright owners like to cause troubles like this, with smaller clips, while oddly leaving up entire films for years at a clip!

Thanks for the note.
