Jonas Mekas Retrospective

22 - 27 October 2019
16:00 - 20:30

Arter’s Film Programme will include regular weekly screenings in addition to retrospectives focused on a theme or a director as well as comprehensive presentations enriched with talks and parallel events. The programme will kick off with a retrospective on Jonas Mekas.


 


The Jonas Mekas Retrospective will present a comprehensive compilation of the works of Jonas Mekas, including screenings of Venice Film Festival Grand Prize winner The BrigThis Side of Paradise which depicts the summers Jackie Kennedy and her family spent in Andy Warhol’s house and Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where the renowned director chronicled life in the streets of New York between 1948 and 1951. In addition to the screenings, significant figures who have worked with Mekas will be discussing his oeuvre and his efforts on the preservation of film.


 


Following the retrospective, Tuesdays in the Sevgi Gönül Auditorium will be reserved for screenings in dialogue with Arter collection exhibitions What Time Is It? and Words Are Very Unnecessary.
