Edit Film Culture! features a rare solo performance by Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), followed by a band of 11 avant-garde musicians, all friends and longtime collaborators of Jonas Mekas. They will perform a live soundtrack in dialogue with Jonas Mekas's most recent feature film OUTTAKES FROM THE LIFE OF A HAPPY MAN.
Unfortunately, Jonas Mekas himself had to cancel his attendance for health reasons.
