Remembering Jonas Mekas

SHARE

Jonas Mekas, the influential filmmaker and co-founder of Anthology Film Archives and the New York Film-Makers’ Cooperative, talks to director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders for Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart(1998) about his 1960s loft space in New York where Andy Warhol learned about experimental filmmaking. Mekas recalls tying Warhol to his seat during a six-hour screening of Sleep, and describes the elusiveness of documenting a life well-lived.
