Movie Details

What's Underground About Marshmallows: Ron Vawter Performs Jack Smith, a "reperformance piece" recorded at New York City's "The Kitchen," is based on the late gay filmmaker Jack Smith's 1981 piece of the same title. The 60-minute program tells the story of the rivalry between Smith and avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas. The late Ron Vawter portrays Smith accusing Mekas of making illegal copies of his films. A highlight includes the "nightmare" segment where Smith fails to prove Mekas' infringement. ~ Kathleen Wildasin, Rovi
