In this film all the footage concerns my personal life between 1975 and 1995. It's sort of home footage of my home life - fragments of paradise. When you look around it's a very ugly world, and see the things happening in different places on this planet. But there are fragments of beauty there, which we should help to grow to offset these horrors. I'm interested in moments of celebration, and I place a lot of hope in the young generation. (Jonas Mekas)
