Our friend Tom Palazzolo came by the other day to talk about his wonderful 1976 film, Jerry’s Deli. From the lush Media Burn outdoor recording studio, Tom shared stories about Jerry Meyer, the larger than life proprietor of this Grand Avenue institution. Enjoy!
Four films by Tom are currently on display at the Art Institute of Chicago, in an exhibition called “Chicago-Scope.” Check it out now through January 9.
As always, you can watch about a dozen more of Tom’s quirky and original films at Media Burn.
