Untitled B&W Film by James Tressler

San Francisco CA 2017

Known most widely by his stage name of Jilala (of the Cockettes and the Angels if Light) and by his more intimate friends simply as JET, Mr Tressler has been making super 8 films since at least the early 1970s, perhaps earlier, and recently he has made several compilations of these very lovely pieces.  The images seen here all come from the second video transcription he recently posted privately on Vimeo for the enjoyment of his friends.  Among the performers one might recognize James Windsor (Tahara,) Ralph Sauer and JET himself.
