"I Have No Script"

Via Green Cine, a 3AM Magazine interview with Jonas Mekas, one of the godfathers of autobiographical cinema. In the interview, Mekas, a Lithuanian-born poet and filmmaker who emigrated to the US, describes his practice of recording hours of footage, often over the course of several years, before compiling that material into a film:

I have no script. The story is me and the people around me. It's there, it's real life and there is no other. I'm not carrying any other story. There is no suspense. There is no violence. There is no drama.
