Jonas in the Fields

Peter Sempel / Germany 2021 / 107 min.


Jonas Mekas - at home everywhere and nowhere. Both a portrait of an artist and a portrait about art, JONAS IN THE FIELDS is not infrequently reminiscent of Mekas' own deeply subjective and autobiographical style of filmmaking. A tribute to a filmmaker and auteur, also called the "godfather of American avant-garde cinema," who managed to unite so many worlds. A wistful as well as serene memoir that passes by stations, places and personalities that shaped Mekas or that he shaped. A film in memory and gratitude to Jonas Mekas (24.12.1922 - 23.01.2019).
