JIM JENNINGS (1951-2022) passed away in May this year after a prolonged illness. Often considered the filmmakers’ filmmaker, Jennings made exquisite, often silent and black-and-white, 16mm films admired by many avant-garde masters and discerning critics. His spontaneous and intuitive camera sculpted urban spaces with light and shadow, revealing striking formal beauty and poetry in the
familiar and the mundane. For this occasion, we present a selection of 7 films to honor Jennings’s remarkable filmmaking career spanning over 4 decades.
