Directed by Jonas Mekas | 2000
"A blizzard of detail and filmmaking technique... the movie crystallizes Mr. Mekas's life into a few hours of blissful, and eventually mournful, experience. The film is a first — the home movie as epic. It's a fleeting storm of a film, with pockets of rhythms that suggest the ebb and flow of a naturally unfolding event..."
—The New York Times

Pioneering independent filmmaker Jonas Mekas compiled more than 30 years’ worth of footage to create this epic home movie. From intimate moments with his family to records of his travels to snapshots of icons like John Lennon, Andy Warhol, P. Adams Sitney, and Hollis Frampton, this joyous, life-affirming work “finds a secret paradise in the rich harvests of a lifetime's memories” (Ed Halter, The Village Voice).
