On Beauty

A lithuanian in exile, film maker and poet Jonas Mekas has been ahead of his time. One of his film projects is titled As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty. It is an admirable and original diary that is based on one of the world´s first "video" blogs Mekas kept in the seventies. But I like the name of the project most. It is partly nostalgic and sad, but at the same time extremely powerful, almost absolute. Let him conclude himself:

"I do not know where I am, and going to, where I am coming from. I have seen some beauty. Glimpses of beauty and happiness. Yes, la beauté. And it is still beautiful in my memory. And it is real, as real as this film."
