Brief Excerpts from Normal Love

Jack Smith, 1964









Thanks to the Walker Art Center in Dallas, Texas, and Isla Leaver-Yap (and her excellent essay, What is Normal Love?, regarding Smith's most ambitious film,) eight brief excerpts from Normal Love, in the lovely and newly struck print (made possible by the Barbara Gladstone Gallery and Jerry Tartaglia,) have appeared online and I'm going to place them here in their proper order.  However, watching these little videos should not be taken as any kind of substitute for seeing the entire film, and that means seeing it projected from beginning to end. (It's especially unfortunate that Jack Smith's ghost can not be resurrected to screen the film in person.)
