Visionaries: Jonas Mekas and the (Mostly) American Avant-Garde Cinema


Visionaries is a passionate documenta ry that provides a history lesson on art and American avant-garde cinema from the 1920s to the present. The film tells the personal history of Jonas Mekas (for whom the director clearly has high admiration) and his role in founding the Anthology Film Archives. Visionaries introduces and explores works from Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali (Un Chien Andalou), Jean Vigo, Ralph Steiner, and others. The story continues with an overviewof new experimental and underground cinemas, and includes work from Maya Deren, Kenneth Anger, Stan Brakhage, Robert Downey, and Andy Warhol, as well as Mekas.
