He Stands in a Desert Counting the Seconds of His Life
Jonas Mekas, 1969/85, 150 min
Introduced by Will Jenkins (7:30pm screening only)

"The film consists of 124 brief sketches, each half-a-minute to about two minutes long. Portraits of people I have spent time with, places, seasons of the year, weather (storms, snow, blizzards etc...) many of my film-maker friends – streets and parks of New-York – brief escape in nature, out of town – nothing spectacular, unimportant celebrations of life that has gone, by now, and remains only as a record in these personal, brief sketches." – Jonas Mekas
