    Location: 2220 Arts + Archives

    Filmforum is honored to celebrate the life and exquisite 16mm filmmaking of Jim Jennings, who died on May 19 of this year.  Jennings was a prolific creator of intimate, generous, and visually striking works of observational photography, nearly all silent and many filmed in the course of his NYC commutes as a master plumber whose company, Time Mechanicals, took him to all corners of the photogenic metropolis.
