Visiting Filmmaker: Jay Rosenblatt
San Francisco-based filmmaker Jay Rosenblatt has carved out a unique aesthetic during a career spanning more than two decades. He is perhaps most associated with a series of deeply personal films that draw on found footage—newsreels, industrial films, home movies—and defy categorization by blending essay, documentary, and poetic forms. Rosenblatt's work has been the subject of recent retrospectives at such venues as the Museum of Modern Art and the Walker Art Center. His films screen regularly on the Sundance Channel, IFC, and HBO, as well as at festivals around the world.
