Article

Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania is an experimental 82-minute color film directed by Jonas Mekas. It documents the director’s and his brother Adolfas’ return to their native village of Semeniškai, Lithuania, for the first time in twenty-five years. The Mekas brothers had fled their village in 1944 trying to escape the war; however, they ended up in a German labor camp. After the end of the war they immigrated to the United States but had great difficulty establishing contact with their extended family that was now living under Soviet occupation.
