By following each cut in the film, this book is a systematic exploration of the shots, sequences, situations and characters included in the film Walden (1969) by Jonas Mekas. Includes a preface with two texts, one from David E. James and and a second by Jean-Jacques Lebel, as well as a bibliography and index.
This book accompanied the first European release of Walden on VHS published by Re:Voir Video, now available apart from the original boxset, which is now out of print.
The Jewish Museum presented the first U.S. museum survey of the Lithuanian-born filmmaker, poet, critic, and institution-builder who helped shape the avant-garde in New York City and beyond. The exhibition "Jonas Mekas: The Camera Was Always Running" was on view at the Jewish Museum February 18 to June 5, 2022.
