Esprit de Corps (1965) 16mm, color, 13.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Dance, Environment & Nature

"Starring Saul Levine, with some of his camerawork. First part: Birth from the water; Second: in the City with Janet, mostly in darkness; third: a bridge of scratches and flashing splices; ending with his dance on the beach, the world upside down, sunset and afterimage."--M.J. "I really liked Mike Jacobson's little film called ESPRIT DE CORPS which was shown last weekend at the Gotham Art Theatre. There was a positive, life-inspiring energy locked in this little unpretentious film. Probably, it was the only life generating film playing in New York that evening-or that week."--Jonas Mekas, Village VOICE.
