Jon Jost, Independent Film-maker – Slow Moves

Jon Jost’s film ‘Slow Moves’ (1983) tells its story through the juxtaposition of a variety of narrative techniques. Along with the action, dialogue, and mise-en-scene, we have a verbal commentary from the actors, both in and out of character, and from Jost a musical commentary in the form of Jost’s song lyrics, and a visual commentary in the photography and editing. What emerges is a film which, while offering multiple points of view, sustains a carefully controlled narrative from beginning to end.

Jon Jost, Independent Film-maker – 13 Fragments and 3 Narratives from Life

The subject of ’13 Fragments and 3 Narratives from Life’ is a girl called Katya; not an actress playing a part, but an ordinary girl who has collaborated with Jost in making a film about herself. The film employs the form and techniques of a documentary, but what emerges is a three-way dialogue between Jost, Katya, and ourselves in which it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish fact from bias.

Jon Jost, Independent Film-maker – Chameleon

Terry of ‘Chameleon’ (1978) is a character who seems to have lost touch with normal human feeling, and whose life is devoid of love, happiness, or purpose. But, being more intelligent than Tom, and having a capacity for self-examination, Terry is a more complex character. While Tom was just beginning to find his place in society, Terry is already established in his, he is a dealer in drugs and art (more or less the same thing in Jost’s view), and as such is an exploiter as well as a victim of society’s dehumanising currents.
