The essays collected here discuss his films, including the underground classics Walden and The Brig ; his founding and longtime editorship of the influential avant-garde journal Film Culture ; and his widely read column in The Village Voice .Mekas, a Lithuanian who was detained in labor camps during World War II, subsequently emigrated to New York and became one of the key figures in that city's postwar experimental cinema movement. The essays collected here discuss his films, including the underground classics Walden and The Brig ; his founding and longtime editorship of the influential avant-garde journal Film Culture ; and his widely read column in The Village Voice . Other memorable events in the New York underground scene are recalled as well, such as musician Charlotte Moorman's topless performances playing the cello during the uninhibited 1960s. Some essays are formal and scholarly, others casual and anecdotal--a rewarding mix that vividly evokes an exciting, outlandish period in filmmaking history. Recommended for academic and subject collections.
