As well as being a long-time friend of Friedl vom Gröller and hosting her on her visits to New York, Jonas Mekas was also an inspiration for her utterly unique approach to portraiture—their films share an unusually controlled sense of spontaneity, and embrace autobiography as a frame for artistic creation. Candidly capturing a series of everyday incidents that unfold in the lively Manhattan streets surrounding the apartment where the filmmaker lived for over thirty years, THIS IS FOR JONAS MEKAS is the filmic rendering of the feeling of a place and a humble tribute to an old friend’s departure. (Salvador Amores)

This film will be shown as part of the screening SHORT FILM PROGRAM 7: TAKING CARE.
