In the early 90’s Jonas Mekas welcomed the films of Abc No Rio’s Naked Eye Cinema into Anthology Film Archives. Jonas said at the time that our energy felt like the reinvigoration of the New American Cinema that he’d founded three decades earlier. Join us as we celebrate Jonas as the legacy of experimental film continues at Le Petit Versailles!
Jonas Mekas is regarded as “the godfather of American avant-garde cinema” and is one of the founding members of both The Film-Makers’ Cooperative and Anthology Film Archives, as well as being a lauded film critic and a filmmaker. He has been consistently making films since the 1960’s and has had his works shown all across the globe.
