JONAS MEKAS Sleepless Nights Stories

Sleepless Nights Stories DV, 2011, color, 114’

“This film originated from my readings of the One Thousand and One Nights. But unlike the Arabian tales, my stories are all from real life, though at times they too wander into somewhere else, beyond the everyday routine reality. There are some twenty-five different stories in my movie.” Jonas Mekas

« Ce film vient de mes lectures des Mille et une nuits. Mais à l’inverse de ces contes arabes, mes histoires font toutes partie de la vraie vie, même si elles s’aventurent parfois ailleurs, au-delà de la routine quotidienne. Il y a quelques vingt-cinq histoires différentes dans ce film. » Jonas Mekas
