Ken Jacobs • United States • 1963
Jacobs' poetic riff on the transformation of The Piper's Son.
In Jacob’s words—“Material was cut in as it came out of the camera, embarrassing moments intact. 100' rolls timed well with music on old 78's. I was interested in immediacy, a sense of ease, and an art where suffering was acknowledged but not trivialized with dramatics. Whimsy was our achievement, as well as breaking out of step.” Preserved by Anthology Film Archives.
