A session dedicated to the most famous siblings of experimental cinema will be held at Cinémathèque de Grenoble, where “Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania” by Jonas Mekas and “Going Home” by Adolfas Mekas will be presented.

Jonas and Adolfas Mekas emigrated to the United States in the 1940s, fleeing a war-torn Lithuania, confronting Nazi occupation and Soviet-initiated repressions. These two films are the intimate chronicle of a return to the native land, the rediscovery of childhood faces and landscapes, with the melancholy of banished men. Because, as Thomas Wolfe wrote, “You can’t go home again”.
