RIP Adolfas Mekas

I woke up this morning to sad news. Adolfas Mekas, my old film professor from Bard passed away this morning. He was 85 and an amazing man with an even more amazing history which he would share with his students at every chance. He is the one who introduced me to so much of what influences me today. There is a 14-hour film called “The Human Condition” that he would screen every four years so you only had one chance to see it. I sat through that film and was rewarded with a small card that read “I Survived The Human Condition”. That was his sense of humor. He was truly special and I feel lucky to have known him and learned from him. Rest in peace Adolfas. You will be missed. Long live St.Tula. Say hello to her from the rest of us…
