To mark his 90th birthday in late December, BFI Southbank will host a retrospective of films by Jonas Mekas, who is one of the most revered and influential filmmakers in independent cinema. To launch this season he will appear In Conversation at BFI Southbank on 6 December.
Jonas Mekas will be discussing his life, his work, filmmaking and the cinema with Mike Figgis and Sandra Hebron.
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.
We have a pair of tickets to give away!
