September 1 at 12:00
East Building Auditorium

Asked to film Martin Scorsese as he was making The Departed, Jonas Mekas worked with his son Sebastian to produce Notes on an American Film Director at Work: Martin Scorsese. “We all had a great time because we all love Marty. It’s a chamber kind of movie, a personal tribute to a friend” — Jonas Mekas. (2005, SD video, 80 minutes)
