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).
