Excerpt from Walden (1969) by Jonas Mekas

Walden, an iconic film of Jonas Mekas, was originally commissioned by Albright–Knox Art Gallery. In this feature-length film, originally titled Diaries, Notes and Sketches, Mekas presents a diary-like film that shows events of Mekas’ life.

Vincent Canby, a legendary film and theatre critic who wrote for The New York Times, wrote that “Mekas has a remarkable gift for making us see, as if for the first time, what we’ve been looking at all our lives.”
