Filmed between 1949 and 1963, Lost, Lost, Lost looks back at Mekas’ earliest years in New York. As Mekas adjusts to a life in exile, he searches for a sense of community among Lithuanian émigrés in Brooklyn before finding kinship in the burgeoning arts scene. A sense of melancholy permeates the film but by the end, Mekas finds ecstasy: paradise regained through cinema. Mekas connects with Lower Manhattan’s poets and filmmakers, and the 60s adventure begins.
