  • Joys of Waiting for the Broadway Bus 2

    2013. USA. Directed by Ken Jacobs. With technical assistance by Nisi Jacobs. Part two of four. “Joys…began on the corner of Broadway and Spring but it was the next night waiting on Bleecker that it was understood a movie of sorts was underway, depicting a general waiting for the bus rather than one specific evening. Since acquiring a small 3-D camera I dawdle everywhere but prolonged bus-waits allow for a continuity of images, thus a movie. Computer-editing with Nisi Jacobs allowed further investigation, this time into digital 3-D itself.” In 3-D. 40 min.

  • Weegee’s Coney Island

    1954. USA. Directed by Weegee. Part of Weegee’s New York. “Weegee (Arthur Fellig) filmed, Amos Vogel edited. The preciousness of the avant-garde shown at Cinema 16 was interrupted by this breath of fresh air. Weegee’s panorama of the crowd may be the greatest single shot in cinedom.” 14 min.

  • Song of Ceylon

    1934. Great Britain. Directed by Basil Wright. Produced by John Grierson. “Brakhage before Brakhage, the visual melding of shots could even make processions of religious nuts appealing. An opium dream made of shards of reality and somehow paid for by the British government, was there anything a released cinema couldn’t do?” 38 min.

Program 93 min.
