The Numero Group to Release Al Jarnow Documentary

Publish date:

Chicago's Numero Group is delving into the world of film for the first time with Celestial Navigations, a collection of films and articles documenting and celebrating the work of filmmaker Al Jarnow. Perhaps best known for his work doing short animations for public television shows such as Sesame Street and 3-2-1 Contact! from the late 1960s onward, Jarnow was also heavily involved in the experimental film world of New York City, working alongside Harry Smith and Stan Brakhage on numerous works. Along with the compilation of 45 of Jarnow's short works, a book of essays, and a documentary come as part of the Numero Group's package.
