Experimental Filmmaker Ken Jacobs Occupies Wall Street - in 3D!

ReelPolitik By Anthony Kaufman | ReelPolitik November 4, 2011 at 1:18PM

The number of filmmakers documenting the Occupy Wall Street is growing. After recent efforts by Jonathan Demme and Jem Cohen, veteran avant-garde luminary Ken Jacobs -- father of Azazel Jacobs -- has uploaded a 6-part series of videos to YouTube (part one is embedded below). Like many of videos to come out of OWS, the footage is verite observations of the activities of the protesters. But Jacobs goes one step further in trying to put viewers into the lively environs, by putting the footage in 3D. (Glasses not included.)

The number of filmmakers documenting the Occupy Wall Street is growing. After recent efforts by Jonathan Demme and Jem Cohen, veteran avant-garde luminary Ken Jacobs -- father of Azazel Jacobs -- has uploaded a 6-part series of videos to YouTube (part one is embedded below). Like many of videos to come out of OWS, the footage is verite observations of the activities of the protesters. But Jacobs goes one step further in trying to put viewers into the lively environs, by putting the footage in 3D. (Glasses not included.)

In the explanation below the video, Jacobs writes: "Short visit to Zuccotti Park. Flo and I walk uptown along Broadway and meet no less that 50,000 people turning onto Broadway at Chambers Street. The event was way under-reported. So far it seems only the cops have benefited, getting endless overtime pay for doing nothing except some beating up on people, chemical spraying and arresting folks for aimless personal diversion."
