  • Rose Hobart

    1936. USA. Directed by Joseph Cornell. “Cornell interrupted his sweeping of mouse droppings to hand me the spliced original of his disregarded film. I watched it, with Jack Smith, in every permutation. Jack vowed to do a remake, daring to go beyond the color blue.” 19 min.

  • A Primer in Sky Socialism

    2013. USA. Directed by Ken Jacobs. "Each new year Flo and I join the young and many-languaged crowd walking to the top of Brooklyn Bridge ostensibly for the fireworks. Fact is the crowd, the bridge, comprise the spectacle. The Bridge is particularly dear to us since the 'Sixties, when we learned the story of the Roeblings, father and son and daughter-in-law. The Bridge embodies their wishes for America, their blessing, nothing less. I filmed (on 8mm.) The Sky Socialist back then and this is a follow-up." In 3-D. 58 min.

diNMachine is an instrumental four-piece rock band, led by keyboardist and composer Michael J. Schumacher, whose roots in experimental electronic music go back to the late 1980s. Other members are Sean Moran, guitar, Hari Ganglberger, drums, and Nisi Jacobs, bass. diNMachine uses both live instruments and prerecorded samples in composed, highly layered, genre-defying songs. The music is groove oriented, bass and drum at its core, fusing elements of noise, motorik, classical, jazz, post-punk, and 1960s surfer pop.
