Cassis (1966)

Cassis (1966): Another of the era's major names, Jonas Mekas is represented here with this time-lapse portrait of the titular French harbor, a precursor of sorts to the similar techniques seen in such films as Koyaanisqatsi (1984). It also shows the approach of Orchard Street already being pushed in more extreme and abstract directions. A former Village Voice critic and founder of New York's Anthology Film Archives, Mekas is a pivotal figure in the history of American avant-garde cinema, even facing multiple arrests on obscenity charges for some of them like Jean Genet's Un chant d'amour (1950).
