60596 Frankfurt am Main,
In the framework of Jonas Mekas 100! the Cinema of the DFF in Frankfurt will present 16mm-screening dedicated to the director “Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania” (1972).
“Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania” chronicles the return journey to Jonas Mekas 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.
