Mr. Mekas is quoted as saying:
"It can be viewed as a classic Greek drama in which the destinies of nations are changed drastically by the unbending, irrational will of one single man (Vytautas Landsbergis), one small nation determined to regain its freedom, backed by its fight against the Might & Power, against the Impossible."
Inspiring words. Words that encourage my unbending, bordering on irrational, will.
Mr. Mekas' biography and catalog of works can be read at Wikipedia.
I look forward to meeting this man tonight at the opening. I am trying to stave off an attack of the "I am not worthy"s.
