Jonas Mekas: 95 and Beyond

Series Site

To celebrate Jonas Mekas’s upcoming 95th birthday (which officially arrives on Christmas Eve), we’ll be supplementing our annual Essential Cinema screenings of WALDEN and REMINISCENCES OF A JOURNEY TO LITHUANIA (Dec 18 & 19) with a selection of rarely-screened films and videos from Jonas’s vast body of work. Encompassing films of all shapes and sizes, and from throughout his nearly 70 years of creating moving images, these screenings represent a modest attempt to acknowledge not only the importance of his filmmaking career but the dizzying variety and richness of his ever-growing filmography.

Happy birthday, Jonas!
