Is this supposed to be constructive? Pulling your own film out of Rotterdam?
Use your brains, folks! We all know that Mary Jordan finished the film and
already showed it publicly several times. This is a great publicity
gimmick that she needs to pull because her so called “documentary” is going
to need all the help it can get to convince people that it actually SAYS
something about Jack Smith and his work.
I was at a film screening last week and another filmmaker told me that she
and her production company have already filed a multi million dollar lawsuit
against the plaster foundation: the people who actually saved and preserved
Smith’s work. She’s probably trying to gain control over the Smith Estate.
She has slandered decent people everywhere she goes: Hurt HER feelings??
Are you freakin crazy?? That woman has stepped all over YOUR colleagues and
people that have helped the American Avant Garde Cinema and worked without
thanks or recognition– and she does so with an arrogance that has NO real
understanding of film history.
When she showed her Jack Smith Circus Show in NY last year, wasn't it clear
that she has hundreds of photographs and many hours of film footage? Use
your brains, people: why is she pulling this stunt over “40 images”???
PUBLICITY !! needed to make up for the rancid failure of her own mediocre
