Jonas Mekas in Conversation

Date: 6 December 2012 | Season: Jonas Mekas

Thursday 6 December 2012
London BFI Southbank

We are honoured to welcome Jonas Mekas for an in depth conversation on his life and work. A celebrated filmmaker working primarily in the autobiographical form, Mekas is also one of cinema’s great activists, responsible for instigating an entire support structure for independent and avant-garde film. This special event launches our two-month retrospective, and coincides with the opening of his solo exhibition at Serpentine Gallery. Mekas will be in discussion with Sandra Hebron and filmmaker Mike Figgis.
