I Seem to Live


Product Description
Product Details


In 2019, Mekas passed away at the age of 96, leaving a chasm in the creative world as well as a trove of diaries [...] a record that bears a unique vision of what it's like to be alive, with a young man's earnestness and a fierceness that comes from hard-won experience. [...] Despite its exhaustiveness, the book is remarkably difficult to put down.--Paul Maziar "Brooklyn Rail"
I Seem To Live encapsulates a great deal of Mekas's diary entries, written between 1950 and 1969. During those years, Mekas also completed twelve films, culminating in his three-hour opus Walden. This collection is not just a survey of moments from a single life lived, but a work of dedicated portraiture of life itself.--Conor Williams "Interview"
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"
Working from a 2,000-page document spanning 60 years, Mekas shaped the diaries into a two-part series that offers a vibrant tour of the New York underground.--Sara Rosen "AnOther Man"
