Rating: 

Average: 2 (1 vote)

This compilation of short film works brings together Jonas Mekas' many forms of expression throughout his career. At times funny, subversive, provocative, ironic, and fundamentally free, this panorama also shows us the sharp eye and acerbic wit that makes Jonas Mekas more than a filmmaker: a lover of life and people that he embraces with his camera, whose montages sing of eternity.
