Event Details

Ken Jacobs was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1933. He studied painting with Hans Hofmann, one of the prime creators of Abstract Expressionism in the mid-fifties. It was then that he also began filmmaking (Star Spangled To Death). In 1967, with the involvement of his wife Florence and many others aspiring to a democratic, rather than demagogic cinema, he created The Millennium Film Workshop in New York City. A nonprofit filmmaker's co-operative open to all, it made available film equipment, workspace, screenings and classes at little or no cost.  The American Museum Of The Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, hosted a full retrospective of his work in 1989, The New York Museum Of Modern Art held a partial retrospective in 1996, as did The American House in Paris in 1994 and the Arsenal Theater in Berlin in 1986. He has also performed in Japan, at the Louvre in Paris, the Getty Center in Los Angeles, etc. Honors include the Maya Deren Award of The American Film Institute, the Guggenheim Award and a special Rockefeller Foundation grant.
