Jonas Mekas invites viewers on a tour through his nightlife, bringing together 25 stories of life, love and friendship.
Mekas’ opening confession that he suffers from insomnia will come as no surprise to anyone aware of his singular contribution to cinema. Eating, drinking, singing and dancing with friends, the tireless octogenarian is full of life and wonder, casually weaving together contemporary folk tales collected during travels across the globe. Treating significant and inconsequential moments with equal import, this modern-day saga presents the first episodes from a proposed ’1001 Nights’ project.
