Little Stabs at Happiness

1960, 14:57 min, color, sound, 16 mm film on video

"Material was cut in as it came out of the camera, embarrassing moments intact. 100' rolls timed well with music on old 78's. 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." -- Ken Jacobs
