This boxset brings together the “diary films” of Jonas Mekas (1922-2019). Mekas perfected a poetic, personal technique of filming his daily life in short bursts, with no plan or script, as one would write when taking notes or keeping a diary. He filmed a little bit every day, collecting his many 100-foot rolls (2’30”), occasionally pausing to edit them together, selecting rolls, sequences or fragments to make films that reflect different periods of his life.
