ZEFIRO TORNA OR SCENES FROM THE LIFE OF GEORGE MACIUNAS, 1992

 In 1966, George Maciunas quietly demonstrated via his Flux Film Anthology that at the dawn of the information age, merely claiming that a film exists was enough to make said film real. Three further works by George Landow, Richard Serra and Hollis Frampton from the 70s also explore the act of reading over time, with the use of music also playing a particular role here. Carried by Monteverdi's madrigal "Zefiro torna", the program ends with a colorful, sad farewell to Maciunas from his Lithuanian companion Jonas Mekas. (me) (31.8.)
