  • Conversation with Sebastian Mekas and José Luis Guerín

José Luis Guerín takes an idea coming from Jonas Mekas: film is a response to life. With this concept in mind, they start exchanging a series of letters and develop a personal relationship which reveals the impressions and similarities of two filmmakers linked by their wish to share opinions and concerns. They establish a unique relationship through a correspondence displayed in the eyes of the viewer and in search of his sympathy, thus creating a new intimate space for thought. CORRESPONDENCIA JONAS MEKAS – J.L. GUERÍN shows the experimentation with the expressive language and the visual reflections of two artists who have found a new form of creation and use of images.
