Eye of Sound: Veteran avant filmmaker Ken Jacobs reassesses lost and found footage of a crowd of Jewish immigrants at a market in the poor areas of Manhattan, reframing movements and gestures through simple image manipulation techniques. Frames float hypnotically, in all directions, as Jauniaux's and Cora's deep, serene and richly textured score unfolds against a screen of constant re-contextualization.
