In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the late Jonas Mekas we are happy to present a one-off screening of his landmark 1972 film “Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania”, in partnership with the Hyde Park Picture House.

“Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania” chronicles the return journey to his homeland with his brother Adolfas, after several decades in the United States. Reuniting with siblings, neighbours and their mother, the film pulls the viewer through village life in rural Soviet Lithuania, bookended by scenes from New York in the 1950s and a stop in Vienna on their return journey to the US. Combining music, poetry and reflections, with short fragmentary bursts of filming, Mekas’ films are alive with memory.

Preceded by a video from Mekas’s “365 Days Project” (2007).

UK Cinema Tour curated by Herb Shellenberger.

Organizers:

For over 70 years, Lithuanian filmmaker, Jonas Mekas, documented his life in what came to be known as his diary films. From his arrival in New York as a displaced person in 1949 to his death in 2019, he chronicled the trauma and loss of exile while pioneering institutions to support the growth of independent film in the United States. Internationally known as the “godfather” of avant-garde cinema, he inspired countless independent artists, from Martin Scorsese, Peter Bogdanovich, Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, John Lennon to John Waters and Jim Jarmusch; all drawn to his indefatigable spirit and belief in the transformative power of cinema. But internally, he struggled.  The traumas of his early life and exile stayed with him.

Directed by K.D. Davison “Fragments of Paradise” is an intimate look at his life and work constructed from thousands of hours of his own video and film diaries—including never-before-seen tapes and unpublished audio recordings. It is a story about finding beauty amidst profound loss, and a man who tried to make sense of it all… with a camera.

“Fragments of Paradise” will be premiered on September 2, 2022, 17:00h at the The 79th Venice International Film Festival, Sala Casino,
and screened on September 3, 2022, 17:00h in Sala Volpi.

In a 2019 interview, asked by Hans Ulrich Olbricht about projects he did not complete, Jonas Mekas answered: “When I turn 100, I want to go to the Himalayas, to Tibet. We’ll talk about it in 2023, when I’m back.” If he was still alive, he would be celebrating his hundredth birthday this year, and probably making the trip he dreamt about. But the voyage he planned remained an idea, fantasy of a potential future which may give meaning to the present moment. Perhaps for Mekas the world’s highest peaks were always just a vision belonging to the realm of unfulfilled dreams which pushed the artist towards continuing development, further mental and artistic journeys.

The artistic duo Emanuel Geisser and Kama Sokolnicka celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the Lithuanian-born artist’s birth with an exhibition about travel, movement, light and dreams which are to remain unfulfilled.

Exhibition is curated by Joanna Kobyłt.

“I don’t know if I write poems… When I shoot, I don’t make films. I just film, film, film. The same is with my writing. I write, I write, I write… Is it poetry or prose? Or nothing? I don’t think about it at all, it doesn’t matter in any way. I just write, write, write…” – Jonas Mekas

Jonas Mekas was captured in various circumstances on video and photo cameras in the diaries of friends and other curious people. The audiovisual installation „Jonas Mekas, more closely and from further away” consists of different extremely personal fragments of video and photo diaries of Arūnas Kulikauskas, Chihiro Ito, and Saulius Paukštys, where the main character is Mekas, a poet, a filmmaker and an artist of life. Arūnas Kulikauskas recorded Jonas Mekas in 1998 on the roof of his house in New York, reading his then unpublished poetry. The New York-based artist Chihiro Ito visited Mekas in 2018 and interviewed him about his work, life, and FLUXUS. Photographer Saulius Paukštys captured the meeting with Jonas Mekas in one of New York bars in 2007.

Exhibition is curated by Gintaras Sodeika.

“After Abbas Kiarostami and Victor Erice, the CCCB in Barcelona has repeated the experience with this video correspondence between Jonas Mekas and José-Luis Guerín. Both travel, both work at home, both reflect on their practice and the world around them in relation to their common obsession with filming. Admiration and respect, Europe and the United States, springtime here and springtime there, seriousness and joy of life. Crossed self-portraits that are addressed in images and sounds, and resolutely intended for everyone.” – Jean-Pierre Rehm, FID Marseille 2011

Association Szmery (“Murmurs”) organises a screening of the film “As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty” by Jonas Mekas at the Declinated Improvisation (Improwizacja Deklinowana) Festival. The festival is dedicated to the phenomenon of improvisation, which we want to bring to the Warsaw community with the help of interdisciplinary events. In addition to workshops, live soundtracked film screenings, open stages, urban walks or performances, we also wanted to include in the program an attempt to show improvisation in cinema, from the perspective of directing and camera work. We believe that the film work of Jonas Mekas, a prominent Lithuanian experimental director, embodies the concept of improvisation in cinema and the film named above proves it without a doubt.

The soundtrack uses sounds recorded at the same time: voices, subway, street noises, a little Chopin or accordion… “. — Jonas Mekas. The film is shown on 16 mm.

Organizers:

Jonas Mekas was not only a writer, poet, artist, and co-founder of Anthology, the Film-Makers’ Cooperative, and Film Culture Magazine, but also a filmmaker of great renown. Immediately following his death, we embarked on a multi-part, comprehensive retrospective of his films and videos, both widely celebrated classics and far more obscure works. That retrospective was all set to conclude with a fifth and final chapter in the spring of 2020, which was ultimately postponed due to the pandemic.

Now, as both a long-delayed continuation of the memorial retrospective, and a celebration of Jonas’s centennial (he was born on December 24, 1922), we present the series of screenings that were initially planned in 2020. The earlier chapters of the retrospective were devoted to his diary films, his portraits of people and places, and his films documenting various forms of art or performance. This installment, on the other hand, showcases the remaining films in Jonas’s filmography, which don’t easily fit into any category. The selection encompasses a small subset of films that constitute film- or video-letters to friends, colleagues, or to the public at large, as well as numerous others that demonstrate Jonas’s restless and ever-inventive openness to new cinematic forms.

Perhaps Jonas Mekas’s cinematic magnum opus, “As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty” is the filmmaker’s nearly five-hour film which he describes as “a masterpiece of nothing”. Through the film’s twelve chapters, the artist describes his obsession with nothing—or what’s considered nothing, in cinema, in life. An associative, poetic construction of footage shot between 1970 and 1999, the film finds beauty in the disorder of everyday life.

As I Was Moving Ahead… is widely regarded as a masterpiece of documentary film, and it is currently the fourth highest-rated documentary on Letterboxd. This epic diary film is structured into twelve chapters, each introduced by Mekas’s wry and self-reflexive commentary.

Please note: “As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty” will be screened in two parts with an intermission, Chapters 1-6 (132 minutes) and Chapters 7-12 (152 minutes).
