  • Nymph

    2007. USA. Directed by Ken Jacobs. A still-life-turned-action-comedy in which a group of men, themselves trapped in place, attempt to trap a woman. 2 min.

  • Let There Be Whistleblowers

    2005. USA. Directed by Ken Jacobs. Music by Steve Reich. Entrancing and trancelike; a train in light and darkness, increasingly abstracted. 18 min.

  • Krypton Is Doomed

    2005. USA. Directed by Ken Jacobs. Jacobs sci-fi: El Greco–like distortions accompanied by an evangelical Superman radio program. 34 min.

  • Capitalism: Child Labor

    2006. USA. Directed by Ken Jacobs. Jolting in every sense of the word, this short masterwork flickers between stereographic cards depicting Victorian-era child laborers, creating a portrait of standardized horrors, endlessly reproduced. 14 min.

In the Film exhibition Ken Jacobs: Filmmaker Extraordinaire
