Details

This pack is the long-awaited continuation to the key works of Jonas Mekas, one of the most prolific avant-garde film artists and an acclaimed poet. Born in Lithuania in 1922, chased west by Soviet and Nazi forces, Mekas and his brother spent four years in German displaced persons' camps before arriving in New York in 1949 where they started shooting 16mm films on exile, military domination and poetic freedom. Jonas developed his diary style of filmmaking while busying himself as a film critic, programmer, organizer and distributor. This pack contains his very first film Guns of the Trees (1962), his quartet of meetings with remarkable friends - Warhol, Lennon, Ono; Maciunas, the founder of the Fluxus movement; his friendship with the family of JFK - and three of his more recent video pieces: the death of Allen Ginsberg; his move away from Manhattan to Brooklyn; his 2011 opus Sleepless Nights Stories, his version of the 1001 Nights. (see individual listings for titles of all films included). All rights of the producer and of the owner of the work are reserved. Unless authorized by the rights holder, no duplication, hiring, lending or public screenings are allowed. For institutional purchase please contact Re:Voir directly.
