On December 2nd, as part of our theme of the month “In der Schwebe” [In limbo] we will screen Jonas Mekas’ film “As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty” in our small cinema in Bielefeld.
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.
