Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

Screened in 16mm, Jack Smith's staple of queer experimental cinema, "Flaming Creatures," is followed by avant-garde pioneer Ken Jacobs' early collaboration with Smith, "Little Stabs of Happiness," which features a beguiling soundtrack of Jacobs’ own 78’s record collection and a humourous, self-referential voice-over.
