This 1973 work by Joan Jonas exemplifies how the gesturalism of post-war art extended to the spheres of film and performance. With its hybrid aesthetic of choreographed action and chance protocol, and its setting in Lower Manhattan, the film presents a nostalgic document of a downtown artistic community.
