"Quand Adolfas et Jonas Mekas arrivent à New york en 1949, ils laissent derrière eux leur pays natal, la Lithuanie, tiraillée entre deux occupants, les nazis et les Soviétiques. Peu à peu, la caméra devient leur moyen d'expression et le cinéma envahi leurs vies. 27 années passèrent avant qu'ils ne pussent retourner en Lituanie. C'est cette odyssée, ce voyage de retour au pays, que ces trois films entremêlés retracent. Chaque cinéaste, les deux frères Mekas et Pola Chapelle, la femme d'Adolfas, est à la fois acteur et témoin. Les frères Mekas se retrouvent confrontés aux changements de leur famille et de leur patrie. Pola Chapelle est le regard extérieur qui vient embrasser ces retrouvailles. Ni Lituaniens, ni New-Yorkais, d'où sont-ils maintenant?"--Coffret

"The Brig" war ein Theaterstück, das den Alltag in einem amerikanischen Millitärgefängnis in knallharten Szenen, fast ohne Worte schildernte. Aufgeführt wurde es vom amerikanischen "Living Theatre", einer künstlerischen Vereinigung, an der sich in den 60er Jahren die Geister schieden. Die Aufführungen der avantgardistischen Truppe waren von schockierendem Realismus und unverblümter Systemkritik geprägt. Nach mehreren erfolgreichen New Yorker Inszenierungen mußte das Theater wegen Steuer- und Mietschulden schließen, das Ensemble schlug sich in Europa durch. Jonas und Adolfa Mekas, zwei der bekanntesten Vertreter des unabhängigen "New American Cinema", das ebenfalls in den 60er Jahren aufkeimte, filmten eine der "Brig"--Aufführungen im Stil einer aktuellen Reportage

"Die Underground-Bewegung in den USA erreichte ihren Höhepunkt im "Underground Cinema", dessen formale und inhaltliche Experimente die Vorstellung über die Möglichkeiten des Films als öffentliches Medium revolutionierten. Diese Dokumentation von Gideon Bachmann zeigt einige Protagonisten der Bewegung - die späteren Großen der Filmszene - sowie Ausschnitte aus ihren Werken und folgt ihnen in ihrem Leben und Arbeitsalltag."

Hallelujah the Hills( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dos hombres aman a Vera pero tardan tanto en formalizar alguna relación, que ella decide casarse con un tercero. Para reponerse, ambos parten de campamento a las montañas, aunque siguen recordando a Vera, cada uno a su manera. Tiene, sobre todo, una enorme vitalidad, encanto, humor y hasta poesía de la mejor especie. Transmite, sin embargo, un mensaje de amor a la humanidad en la forma más convincente posible. Sin embargo, este film tan a la francesa está inscripto en la mejor tradición norteamericana, porque tanto Godard como Truffaut han aprendido mucho de un cierto tipo de cine norteamericano que va de las comedias mudas de Mack Sennett hasta las sofisticaciones de Howard Hawks y, al imitar a los franceses, Adolfas Mekas revierte la tradición a su lugar de origen
