Anthology Film Archive presents a group screening of short films by Douglass Crockwell, Dwinell Grant, and Creative Capital artist Ken Jacobs. Jacobs’ Little Stabs at Happiness was shot on 16mm. “Material was cut in as it came out of the camera,” says Jacobs, “embarrassing moments intact. 100’ rolls timed well with music on old 78s. I was interested in immediacy, a sense of ease, and an art where suffering was acknowledged but not trivialized with dramatics. Whimsy was our achievement, as well as breaking out of step.”
