Films by Jay Rosenblatt

San Francisco independent Jay Rosenblatt will present a program of his quirky and interesting films, including his ten-minute Short of Breath (1990). Most of this masterpiece belongs to that currently overworked and underthought experimental genre “the found-footage film,” but Rosenblatt—emulating Bruce Connor, the master of the genre, in a fresh and psychoanalytical manner that is at once sad, frightening, and lyrical—makes it the stuff of high drama. He'll also be showing Blood Test (1985), Paris X2 (1988), and Brain in the Desert (1990).
