Black and white evokes nostalgia for The Great Depression. Things were so cheap, including lives, and we see daredevils (desperate people) compete for money prizes.

“The latest digitally stereoscopic work in avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs’s patented Eternalisms. Dizzying renderings of fire, crashes, explosions, and rooftop escapades capture movement at their most alarming moments. Accompanied by Michael J. Schumacher’s haunting score,  reminiscent of a long-gone fairground or a busy factory, the result is an evocative capture of objects as they near destruction and oblivion.”
— Laura K. Jacobs
