New York based filmmaker Jim Jennings has been making films for over 10 years and had his first one-person show at the Cinematheque in 1978. Jennings’ films deal with the variations and subtleties of one image or idea bringing an acute filmic awareness and spontaneity to the screen. The physical effect of his use of spatial and rhythmic tension coupled with visual surprises serves to uncover the unsuspected profundity of small things.
