Year1979 Duration8 min. DirectorManuel De Landa

Super-8-to-16 mm. Silent

De Landa’s public (and ephemeral) artworks invoke the psycho-geographical liberation of New York. Unconscious desire. Slips of the tongue. Transgressive eruptions of humor. In the perverse body of the city. THIS IS ISMISM. 

Preserved by The Anthology Film Archives with the support from The National Film Preservation Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. 

The rights holder has not permitted a digital presentation on Festival Scope. But the film is freely available on Manuel De Landa's own Vimeo page.
