Sleepless Nights Stories, 2011, USA, 114 min.
Director: Jonas Mekas
The Lithuanian filmmaker, artist, and writer Jonas Mekas is a legend of the avant- garde and one of the key figures in the history of experimental cinema. Sleepless Nights Stories follows Mekas through the apartments, galleries, and bars of New York—the city to which he and his brother emigrated in 1949, having spent the war in a German labor camp—where we meet friends including Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, and Marina Abramović.
