Jonas Mekas diary films of New York City are records not only of his life, but also the experiences of many residents of the citys boroughs. Filmed between 1949 and 1951, with some material from 1972, Williamsburg, Brooklyn was completed in 2003 and represents a «poor mans/immigrants Utopia», according to Mekas. The shot of the World Trade Center is a painful reminder of the citys recent history. (Susan Oxtoby)
