Jump Cut Theater & Flea Market Films

This Super Bowl eve, Jump Cut and Flea Market Films will spend an evening looking at that lowliest form of moving image: the television commercial.  We will turn back the clock to the TV ads of the 1980s with the third installment in the Commercial Cinema series. 

Included will be the complete 1986 Clio Awards reel, presented on 16mm and showcasing all of the award-winning (sometimes bonkers, often great) commercials of that year.  We are also thrilled to be able to present pioneering video artist Joan Logue's "30-Second Spots," each one a puzzling portrait of a famous avant-garde artist (including Laurie Anderson, John Cage, and Philip Glass.)  Rounding out the program will be a selection of vintage consumer awareness films that both exalt and critique the medium of the TV commercial.
Saturday, February 1
