A program of short works by Ken Jacobs selected by Scott MacDonald
This program of short films might remind us of Hemingway’s famous metaphor for his writing style: “The dignity of the movement of an iceberg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water.” The 7 films in this program are certainly evidence of Jacob’s ever-evolving vision, but they are at best an infinitesimal sign of a remarkable, even more prolific, contribution to modern cinema and modern art.– Scott MacDonald
