In 1969 the American avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs made TOM TOM THE PIPER'S SON, a landmark work that re-examines a short 1905 film based on Hogarth's 'Southwark Fair.' The cinematic equivalent to an archeological dig, Jacobs penetrates the original film's contents (story, performers, film surface/grain) by isolating and repeating parts of the image. Forty years on, he's still digging and RETURN TO THE SCENE OF THE CRIME is one of his latest works that further interrogates and explodes the 1905 original in the digital domain.
