Reminiscences Journey to Lithuania

Named to the National Film Registry in 2006, Jonas Mekas’ Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania is one of his most carefully constructed feature-length diary films. Centered on a 1971 trip he took to the Lithuanian village of his birth, the film intricately unearths layers of memory and the present to portray not only Mekas’ own history (he left Lithuania with his brother during World War II) but the situations of displaced persons everywhere. This screening is dedicated to the memory of Jonas Mekas’ brother, Adolfas Mekas, who passed away on May 31. (16mm)
