New Yorker filmmaker Ken Jacobs was a central figure in the post-war experimental cinema and the avant-garde movement of the '60s and '70s. His exploration and innovations in filmmaking, from his first films to his recent digital video experiment have influenced countless of artists. He is widely considered as a founder of American avant-garde cinema.
Jacobs is the director of "Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son (1969)" which was admitted to the National Film Registry in 2006. His "Star Spangled to Death (2004)" is a seven-hour largely consisting of found footage.
His influences were from his fascination for early cinema -- found footage was his dominant inspiration as he would deconstruct the cinematic narratives and manipulate them.
