december 26, 1960

Jonas Mekas deep of winter
50 years ago today...

"we tried a new method of editing. we have cards for every shot. we layed them out on a huge reflector. we caught a roach and let it crawl through the cards. but somehow, the beast chose a very straight line, not interesting at all"

P.S. It's cool that the roach is "a beast", I suppose it's all a matter of scale.
