First volume of two covering the artist’s journals between 1950-1969, when Mekas first arrived in New York, began shooting experimental films, and became an important fixture of the New York underground scene. 

 “This first volume of the filmmaker’s journals charts his progress from immigrant life in Williamsburg to the center of the American avant-garde.” (Nolan Kelly, Hyperallergic)
