65 – Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania (1972)

Standard

Director: Jonas Mekas Running time: 88 mins

Subject: Three geographically-organised vignettes from indie darling, Mekas. Brooklyn, Semeniskiai (Mekas’ hometown in Lithuania) and Vienna are shot on Bolex with lots of family scenes and nostalgia but nothing cohesive to thread the meandering footage together.

Like: Sitting in the corner of a stranger’s party.

Core truth: Reminiscences of a plot-free past.
