according to his website its coming soon! Other films by him are available through links on his site.
We endeavour to find our own personal paradise... We search for this paradise, when in fact, paradise is within all those little moments. The little moments that cinema ignores; the most moments that we often ignore. Mekas says towards the start of his life affirming opus magnus, that he was always looking for the "real life". I think he found it.
Having conceived a film that's basically this as directed by moi (knew that random archival footage would come in handy someday) I'm wondering if someone has a streaming link. My external hard drive is dead, I can't afford to buy a new one till June, and streaming would be the easiest way for me to see it and save both bandwidth and storage space.
If there's a ever a point that you doubt yourself as a filmmaker, watch this film or any other film by Jonas Mekas. You know that quote, "Anyone can write a novel as long as it's about yourself"? Well, anyone can make a film as long as it's about yourself. Just be fucking sincere and truthful about it.
Hello everyone. I really want to watch it, but i can't find it nowhere. Someone could help me?
"A film about people who have never any arguments and no fights and who love each other". A film about nothing, but beauty, nothing, but life.
A really magical film that captures life and memories perfectly. The combination of beautiful home video footage, beautiful narration and beautiful music create a pretty beautiful film. I did find some of the sections without narration a bit tedious at times and I think it could have possibly been a bit shorter, but it impressed me more than anything I've seen recently.
This will to produce a real intimacy between art and life is a founder idea of Fluxus, it's interesting to see Jonas Mekas creating his cinema like a whirl of fleeting memories, revealing a very sensitive and poetic vision picking up coloured instants and nuances in the grey uniformity of the banal and daily. His filmed memories seem like matriochkas questioning on (his) life and people but also art (the still (-life) here is a good example to illustrate this).
i wish i could send you a film-copy of it. to show you my appreciation toward you. hélas. i'm both poor and 35 mm copies are for theatres only right? and the author's production company right? bah. have not yet seen this film, though. i wish to, mainly because you have not and this way i could tell you about it on a letter or something.
