Synopsis

“On October 9th, 1972, half of the music world gathered in Syracuse, N.Y., to celebrate the opening of John Lennon/Yoko Ono Fluxus show, designed by George Maciunas. Same day, a smaller group gathered in a local hotel room to celebrate John’s birthday.” – Jonas Mekas

Our take

Shot in 1972, Jonas Mekas’s short documentary diary juxtaposes footage from an exhibition of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s work with the celebrations of Lennon’s 32nd birthday party—bringing us up close with several friends, including bandmate Ringo Starr, Andy Warhol, and Allen Ginsberg.
