Ken Jacobs with Manorexia score at the NY Film Festival

The new film by legendary avant-garde film maker Ken Jacobs is premiering at the New York Film Festival. The film uses the music of Manorexia as it’s soundtrack, drawn from the album Dinoflagellate Blooms. Entitled Seeking The Monkey King, it will premiere at the Walter Reade Theater in Lincoln Center NYC on October 7 2011,  with an additional screening on Oct 10. Jacobs is perhaps best known for his film Star Spangled to Death, and has been experimenting in film since the 1950s. Presented as part of NYFF’s Views From The Avant Garde,  Jacobs and Thirlwell will be on-hand for a Q and A after the screening of the premiere.
