Jacob’s House (forthcoming) :

Jacob's House is a slow exploration of what constitutes a house and how a house constitutes a way of life. Made collaboratively between two neighbors–filmmaker Lucas Kane and painter Jacob Eye–this film traces Jacob's 15 year relationship to his home and his ongoing resistance to a brutal eviction attempt as a new wave of gentrification sweeps the neighborhood. By prioritizing Jacob’s own emphasis on the spiritual nature of this battle, and by focusing on the physicality of the house and its many transformations over the course of this eviction attempt, this living document seeks to lay bare the injustices of NYC’s housing crisis and open deep and rippling questions on the nature of what is home.
