Event Information
Featuring live musical accompaniment by CAGE (Cornell Avant-Garde Ensemble)!

"One of the founders of the American avant-garde cinema, Ken Jacobs (b. 1933) has been working ceaselessly and boundlessly in film, video and moving image performance for over fifty years". Among Jacobs' most important inventions is his Nervous Magic Lantern, a mysterious and mesmerizing performance of light and shadow that returns to cinema's most essential roots, and which he evocatively describes as 'cinema without film or electronics.' (Harvard Film Archive) Using light, fans, a spinning shutter and his own hands, Mr. Jacobs, along with his collaborative partner and wife, Flo Jacobs, project images that you will swear have been recorded on a strip of film. They have collaborated with many different music groups over the years to present these shows, each one unique. This show will also include several short films by Jacobs.
