The Numero Group, the local record label that’s made its name compiling the works of forgotten regional soul labels, has just issued its first DVD, Celestial Navigations: The Short Films of Al Jarnow. It collects 45 shorts by the prolific but low-profile filmmaker (who’s also a painter, a sculptor, a software developer, and an exhibit designer), from experimental shorts to pieces for children’s shows like Sesame Street and 3-2-1 Contact—in a lavish package with a 60-page booklet. This 90-minute program features 17 of Jarnow’s works and a half-hour documentary about him.
Price: $10, $7 students, $5 members
