Producer: Shirley Clarke
Director: Shirley Clarke
Cast: Jason Holliday (né Aaron Payne)

On the night of December 2, 1966, Clarke and a tiny crew convened in her apartment at the Hotel Chelsea to make a film. There, for twelve straight hours they filmed the one-and-only Jason Holliday as he spun tales, sang, donned costumes and reminisced about good times and bad behavior as a gay hustler, sometime houseboy and aspiring cabaret performer. The result is a mesmerizing portrait of a remarkable, charming and tortured man, who is by turns hilarious and heartbreaking.

Portrait of Jason was preserved by the Academy Film Archive with funding by the Academy Film Archive, Milestone Films, the Toronto International Film Festival and a Kickstarter campaign. It was restored from the original 16mm fine grain interpositive and a 35mm print.

Release Date: 1967
Running Time: 105 minutes
