FYI for everyone, Chicago Filmmakers preserved eight of Tom Palazzoloıs
films with grants from the National Film Preservation Foundation and the
Film Foundation (regular grant and an Avant-Garde Masters Grant), including
JERRYıS. [Thanks to Carolyn Faber, who managed the project!].

These films are available for screenings. Contact CF at
email suppressed for info or email me privately (I donıt work
there anymore ­ except for Onion City festival ­ but know the details.

JERRYıS is good no matter the source, but CFıs print sure looks nice (and
isnıt red/pink like every other one we found).
