Jacobs | 1956 – 2004 | US | 440m
*Ken Jacobs in person
“Ken Jacobs: Recent Works”
1:30 at MoMI

“Timely no matter what decade when viewed, and no doubt it stands as a singularly important vision that chronicles American society of the past 50 years. Star Spangled is like a sponge, absorbing into itself political advertisements, patriotic songs, home movies, television programs, soft porn, newsreels, early cartoons, and the delirious street antics of Jack Smith and Jerry Sims. It is also incredibly entertaining, funny, and accessible – perhaps more so than any avant-garde film I’ve ever seen. Nothing’s sacred for Jacobs, except perhaps film itself. An investigation of what cinema is, has been, and could be.”
