KEN JACOBS: Star Spangled to Death

Ken Jacobs: <i>Star Spangled to Death</i>

EAI supports the advancement of public access, engagement, and discussion — and the radical voices of artists and the power of art as agents of change.

This Friday, January 20th, we invite you to join us for a free, day-long screening of Ken Jacobs' seven-hour epic, Star Spangled to Death (1956-60/2003-04). Compiling found footage and archival material beginning in 1957, Jacobs spent decades filming, observing, and responding to American culture and history. We welcome everyone to join us on this day of action and reflection.
