    Jack Smith’s 16-mm film Scotch Tape (1959–62) as screened on the Sundance channel.

    From J. Hoberman’s notes for the catalogue Live Film! Jack Smith!: “Jack Smith’s first released movie is an apparently edited-in-camera 100-foot role of Kodachrome II shot in 1959, using Ken Jacobs’s 16mm Bell & Howell at one of Jacobs's Star Spangled to Death locations—the rubble-strewn site of the future Lincoln Center on Manhattan’s west side.”
