Interview with Jonas Mekas

If you don't know Jonas Mekas, you should. He has stories to tell, lots of them.

Short Films from a Long Life

Jonas is a filmmaker, a diarist, a poet, a promoter of cinema verite, and an all around innovator. Those of you who are over a certain age may remember his film criticism column in the Village Voice. Jonas is a true pioneer, and the list of his friends reads like a Who's Who of the creative milieu of the '60s and '70s. At 85, he's embarking on a film a day for the year 2007. You'll be able to view them on his website.

Don't miss it!
