Jonas Mekas in London

The founder of the iconic Anthology Film Archives in New York and a walking emblem of cinephilia, Jonas Mekas, will be in London on 17 and 19 July introducing films at Café 1001 and Curzon Soho respectively. At the former, there will be a screening of a selection of Mekas's own short films and at the latter the evening will include a screening of his 1997 Birth of a Nation (pictured) feature.

For those who can't make it, here is an edited version of a short film called Happy Birthday to John that Mekas made in 1972 featuring John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

This is not a film called Foot Shooting.
This is someone else taking Jonas' footage from his film " Happy Birthday to John " and re-editting it.
Mekas is a Legend! - People should see his films projected, they've influenced so many filmmakers!
