Jonas Mekas: The Film-Makers’ Cinematheque Revisited

Anthology Film Archives will present a series of screenings that recreate a selection of the Cinematheque programs that took place at the Jewish Museum from 1968 - 1970. The Cinematheque programming organized over the course of those years by Jonas Mekas is, from today’s perspective, an intriguing mixture of filmmakers and films that would soon be effectively canonized as part of the nascent Anthology Film Archives’ “Essential Cinema” collection, as well as numerous other filmmakers who are little-known and rarely-screened today.
