2001, Jon Jost, USA, 68 mins, video

Jon Jost in person!

Jon Jost numbers among the first and most adventurous of American independent filmmakers to explore non-film methods of production.  He is in the forefront of the movement to create a new aesthetic and a new visual vocabulary for the electronic image-making medium.  Based in Europe for the past several years, this former Chicagoan shot 6 Easy Pieces in Portugal and Italy, using visual perceptions, street images and a wide range of motions to create an engaging piece that is part narrative, part abstraction. Presented with the Department of Film, Video, and New Media of the School of the Art Institute. Video. (Barbara Scharres)
