MAKESHIFT (FOR MEKAS)

Directed by Jem Cohen
United States, 2019
Short

Synopsis

Jem Cohen’s memory-tribute to Jonas Mekas displaces its first-person narration from voice-over to on-screen text. Diaristic New York street imagery from 2015 mingles with the red roses of Lithuania and a ‘makeshift memorial’ to this beloved figure of the avant-garde.
