AS I WAS MOVING AHEAD OCCASIONALLY I SAW BRIEF GLIMPSES OF BEAUTY d. Jonas Mekas, 2000 + Intermission presented by Herb Shellenberger at The Prince Charles (09 JAN 17:45 – 300mins).

As I Was Moving Ahead… is widely regarded as a masterpiece of documentary film, and it is currently the fourth highest-rated documentary on Letterboxd. This epic diary film is structured into twelve chapters, each introduced by Mekas’s wry and self-reflexive commentary. We are proud to present the film in a brand new digital restoration by RE:VOIR with support from the Lithuanian Film Center. The film will be presented with a brief 10min intermission.” (Herb Shellenberger)
