Jonas Mekas: History of American Avant-Garde Film



In honor or the 45th anniversary of the Film-makers' Cooperative, the largest archive and distributor of independent and avant-garde films in the world, Jonas Mekas, who founded the Coop with twenty-plus other filmmakers in 1962, sat down with MM Serra, its current Director, and talked about events in the 50s and 60s that help forge his New America Cinema movement. Ultra-spry, even ferocious, at age 84 Mekas recounts events involving fascinating characters of the time such as Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, and the miraculous Barbara Rubin. (36 minutes)



In a benefit for the Coop, two programs of works by the Film-Makers' Coop's Board of Directors along with films that have inspired them from the FMC collection and a third program of old and new works selected by the Coop's staff screens at Anthology Film Archives, May 12-14, 2006.
