Today in Gothamist…a conversation with Jonas Mekas about his move to Brooklyn and his film about the experience, “A Letter From Greenpoint,” which is screening tonight at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens. In the interview, Jonas Mekas talks about his filmmaking process and about Avant Garde film:
Avant garde film could be compared to poetry in literature. It’s a sensitivity. It’s not entertaining. Or it’s entertainment is on a different level. There are those who are interested in poetics in forms of cinema. They do not express anything directly, only indirectly.
