Jack Smith, Scotch Tape, 1959–62

3:07

Jack Smith's 16-mm film Scotch Tape, 1959–62, as screened on the Sundance channel.

From J. Hoberman's notes for the catalogue for “Live Film! Jack Smith!”: “Jack Smith's first released movie is an apparently edited-in-camera 100-foot role of Kodachrome II shot in 1959, using Ken Jacobs's 16mm Bell & Howell at one of Jacobs's Star Spangled to Death locations—the rubble-strewn site of the future Lincoln Center on Manhattan's west side.”
