Jonas Mekas: Poetry of the Everyday

Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania

Jonas Mekas United States, 1972

Jonas Mekas’ second diary film lovingly records a return to his native Lithuania after 27 years of absence. The émigré avant-garde pioneer negotiates the trauma of being a “displaced person” by weaving together bittersweet memories, and moments of beauty and loss: finding a home in cinema forever.

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.

Scenes from the Life of Andy Warhol: Friendships and Intersections
