A Performance by Jack Smith

Directed by Midi Onodera
Canada, 1992 (documentary / avant-garde, 5 minutes, colour)

Film Description:
"In October of 1984, the highly acclaimed New York artist, Jack Smith, came to Toronto for a week long performance/Halloween ritual at the Funnel Experimental Film Theatre. This performance, true to Smithesque form, went by three different titles: 'Dance of the Sacred Foundation Application,' 'Brassieres of Uranus,' and 'Impacted Croissants From Outer Space.' Accompanied by the music of Yma Sumac, this short piece remains the last film documentation of this historic event."
