In addition to his prolific work as a director, Mekas has also been an integral figure in the exhibition and promotion of experimental film. He founded “Film Culture” magazine in 1954, the “Film-Makers Cooperative” in 1962, and the “Filmmakers Cinematheque” in 1964, which went on to become Anthology Film Archives. Two of his pivotal works, LOST LOST LOST and WALDEN were recently released on Blu-ray by Kino Lorber.”
