Walden (Diaries, Notes, and Sketches)
Jonas Mekas’s first long diary film records the events of his life from 1964-69.
Jonas Mekas’ first long diary film, whose subtitle Diaries, Notes and Sketches perfectly encapsulates his impulsive style of filming, records the events of his life from 1964-69. Mekas was at the centre of New York’s avant-garde during a crucial period when the independent film scene intersected with the worlds of art, poetry and music. Walden vibrates with restless energy, and to watch it is to see history unfold.
