Marie Menken's films are political treasures, glittering jewels on the edge of beaten cinema paths. Often incidentally created, since, as she said, she loves the buzzing noise of the machine. Incidental, insignificant films--the most important films in the world. As a filmmaker, Marie Menken had a great influence on Jonas Mekas and his Diaries. In her Andy Warhol portrait, she shows one long day in the life of the pop artist.
