13.11.1989: In Memory of Jack Smith (1932-1989)
Alf Bold dedicated this program to the memory of the then recently deceased queer New York Underground icon Jack Smith (1932-1989). The program featured such pearls as Smith’s legendary film FLAMING CREATURES (1963), CHUMLUM by Ron Rice of the same year and LITTLE STABS AT HAPPINESS (1960) by Ken Jacobs. Twenty years later the Arsenal was fortunate enough to be able to digitize Jack Smith’s Super 8 films through the support of the Alf-Bold-Experimental-Film-Fonds.
