Mekas and his brother spent four years in German displaced persons’ camps before arriving in New York in 1949 where they started shooting 16 mm 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.

Après avoir passé quatre ans dans un camp de réfugié en Allemagne. Jonas Mekas s’achète aussitôt une caméra 16 mm et commence, au jour le jour, à filmer le monde qui l’entoure. Il invente ainsi le journal filmé et affirme un style lyrique et profondément personnel, qui sublime le quotidien tout en témoignant de l’exil, de l’oppression politique et des forces vitales de la poésie.

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 moving away from Soho to Brooklyn; his 2011 opus Sleepless Nights Stories, his version of the One Thousand and One Nights.
