Jason and Shirley

Directed by Stephen Winter
With Jack Waters, Sarah Schulman
2015, 79min

 

In 1967, legendary avant-garde filmmaker Shirley Clarke made one of her simplest and most radical films, a feature-length interview of downtown entertainer, hustler, and raconteur Jason Holliday called Portrait of Jason. In his new lo-fi film, director Stephen Winter goes on to imagine what happened when the cameras weren’t rolling, casting downtown theater veteran Jack Waters and author-activist Sarah Schulman in the lead roles. Winter plunges the viewer into the dizzying power struggle between filmmaker and subject, as the increasingly inebriated Jason battles to turn the tables on his interlocutors and they seek to challenge his carefully constructed persona.

 
Mondo Cane

Directed by Michael Almereyda
2015, 12min

 

Almereyda trains his camera on acclaimed photographer and lifelong Brooklynite Thomas Roma as he describes his iconic images.
