Bar Laika presents: Jonas Mekas, Travel Songs​

Jonas Mekas, Travel Songs (still), 1967-1981.

Bar Laika is proud to present Travel Songs by our neighbor Jonas Mekas.

Drawn together from two decades of itinerant shooting in Europe, Travel Songs (1967-1981, 25 minutes) evokes Jonas Mekas' improvisatory approach to sightseeing, with Assisi, Moscow, and Stockholm all filtered through his singularly animated lens. Though tuned to fine-grained particularities of landscape and culture, Travel Songs is finally a testament to the razzle-dazzle Mekas seems to find no matter where he goes.

Jonas Mekas is a Lithuanian American filmmaker, poet and artist who has often been called "the godfather of American avant-garde cinema". His work has been exhibited in museums and festivals worldwide. Mekas lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
