Jack Smith

Overstimulated (1959-63) 16mm, black and white, 3 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: queer

Note: This film is silent. "This short film, restored in 1995, stars Jerry Sims and the late filmmaker, Bob Fleischner. It is an early filmic exploration of the 'aesthetic of delirium' which Smith developed in his later films. At one time, in the 1970s this film was treated by Smith as a fragment, and included in various film/performances with No President. The audio cassette has 12 minutes of material and can be played at any point for the duration of the film." -- J. T. Plaster Foundation -- Brand new distribution print courtesy of Gladstone Gallery.
