A portrait of Jack Hirschman, coffee poet and discreet comrade, communist from North Beach, editor of the Anthology Artaud (City Lights), translator of Mayakovsky, Kamensky's reinforced concrete poetry and Abraham Abolafia's innovative cabalistic poetry, the introduction to Alexander Trocchi's novels, etc. Hirschman's poems of that time are cut, as did the Russian futurists, into the smallest possible units, which retain a motivating power ("zaums") and then assembled to obtain a maximum rhythmic. Shot with a mechanical Bolex.
