WN: You talked about the 9 million Super 8 cameras in the 1960s. Today, even more people than that are using digital video. Do you think all these filmmakers will change cinema?
Mekas: I mentioned that number, the 9 million, when talking to (director Pier Paolo) Pasolini in Paris in 1968, during the student revolution. "Maybe something interesting will happen with their cameras," I said. "These cameras can change the nature of communications." And he said, "There are more typewriters than cameras. Did that change the world? Did that make this revolution?"
WN: But the digital cameras must be having an influence.
Mekas: Yes, yes definitely. New technologies make more money than old ones.
Lithuanian Jonas Mekas needs no introduction to America's arts scene. In fact he's one of its great-fathers.
His latest project is to create and show 365 films in 365 days - every day until the end of 2007. The poetic shorts will be cut out from Mekas' massive collection of diary footage, documenting explosive 60's NYC scene.
