About

TITLE for Adolfas Mekas
Jeff Preiss 2018
16mm film transferred to DVD on Eight 4” LCD monitors and a projection of:
An Interview with Ambassador from Lapland by Adolfas Mekas 1967 (titled version 2018) 16mm film transferred to Bluray.

50 years after Adolfas Mekas’s original act of protest, his facsimile of found-footage is reframed as memorial by the act of posthumous titling, and this reframing is framed again by a schematic mapping back to the physical space of production, evoking through its fractured mise-en-scène an homage to the under-recognized master filmmaker and teacher.

“A complex fellow was Adolfas, kept erect by his fine clothes so as not to become a puddle of feelings”
—Ken Jacobs
