Description: Underground filmmaker, photographer, actor, performance artist, Lower East Side fixture, homosexual, and anticapitalist Jack Smith was a central figure of New York underground culture from the 1960s until his death in 1989. This portrait of Jack Smith is replete with an assemblage of photographs, film clips, and audio recordings of Smith's own voice, while resurrecting the seminal importance of Smith to the entire development of the 1960s New York underground scene.
