TV newscast discards from 1965 relating to the assassination of Malcom X, out-takes of history reprinted as found in a Canal Street bin (with the exception of boosting volume second half) selling for the cost of the used film-reel ($5).
A rare chance to see one of Ken Jacobs' Nervous System Film Performances in which, using his own specially developed projection system, he presents a revelatory exploration of the duo's BERTHMARKS.
