“Occupy Wall Street:
Ken Jacobos program”
5:15 at Anthology

“The images sometimes freeze and are amended by on-screen history lessons, political commentary, moments of sentiment and words of advice: ‘Read Marx. See René Clair’s À Nous la Liberté.’  To which I will add: See this movie. The film is a reminder that, in a world of continuously streaming images, an artist like Jacobs challenges the tyranny of visual uniformity, and not simply with angry words. His work opens your ears and mind, and, simply put, has no like in the multiplex, the art house or even most festivals.”
