New Digital Restoration!


United States | 1963 | Adolfas Mekas

Debuted in America at the first New York Film Festival in 1963 and revived at this fall’s 54th in a new digital restoration, this “underground movie” milestone by Jonas Mekas’ younger brother is a very funny, movie-mad comedy about two friends who spend years wooing the same woman (played by two different actresses). She ends up marrying neither of them. Hailed by the Time Out Film Guide as “an enduring delight for real film buffs,” this Vermont-set farce boasts affectionate spoofs of everything from silent films to the French New Wave, swashbucklers to samurai movies. “Antic, freewheeling…A story of love, loss, and lunacy.” –The New Yorker. Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 82 min.
