Abstract
This slightly underexposed home movie from the JoAnn Elam Collection features Elam and film scholar Julia Lesage talking outside by the barbecue grill, before other friends join them, including film scholar and Lesage’s partner Chuck Kleinhans. In 1974, Kleinhans, Lesage, and John Hess had founded the film journal Jump Cut, which engaged critically with the vibrant community of critics and experimental filmmakers in Chicago at that time. As this footage indicates, Elam had close ties with this community.
