American Glass Factory (2023, 55 minutes)
Live Performance by Jason Fox

What does the U.S. Democratic Party share in common with observational documentary? The promise and the problem of transparency. In this live performance from the audio series "Trust Issues," filmmaker and World Records editor Jason Fox explores the 60-year relationship between Direct Cinema and Democratic Party politics. Fox will trace these ties, from Robert Drew’s pioneering 1960 portrait of the Wisconsin Democratic presidential primary contest between John F. Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey, Primary, to Michelle and Barack Obama’s Higher Ground Productions and the Oscar winning documentary, American Factory. The piece combines live narration with an accompanying 125 live video and audio cues.

This series is made possible by the Department of Art, the Film and Media Studies Program and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.

Programmed by Lindsey Lodhie
