Edit Film Culture! features a rare solo performance by Thurston Moore, followed by Jonas Mekas himself on stage with his band of avant-garde musicians from the United States and Europe.
Thurston Moore started Sonic Youth in 1980. Since then he has been at the forefront of the alternative rock scene since that particular sobriquet was first used to signify any music that challenged and defied the mainstream standard.
Jonas Mekas is a director, cinematographer, editor, writer, actor, poet, artist, and publicist. More than 60 years of tireless work in film, arts and media has earned him the epithet “The Godfather of American Avant-Garde Cinema”. In 2007, he completed a series of 365 short films released on the internet — one film every day — and since then has continued to share new work on his website. He currently lives and works in New York City.
Edit Film Culture! is presented by Lithuanian Culture Institute.
