THE JACOBSONS

by Jeff SCHER
2001 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 3' 00

The Jacobsons (2001) is a portrait of a father and son who both perform amateur magic acts. They had never "competed" before in the escape from a
straight jacket act, so I put them up to it. I think the film winds up
being as much about thier relationship as father-son as it is about the act. It was shot with a Eumig c-16 and edited entirely in camera. Music is by Shay Lynch. This is also a film with suggests that insanity is heriditary.
