    LOST, LOST, LOST

    Jonas Mekas United States, 1976

    A deeply personal, delightfully idiosyncratic, remarkably free-ranging, and ultimately powerfully searching diary film from Jonas Mekas. An interpretive chronicle of the Lithuanian’s struggle to find a sense of home in mid-century Brooklyn, it’s a profound expression of longing and hope.
