After 30 years of living in SoHo, Jonas Mekas decides to move out of his loft. It was the place where he watched his children grow, and where the New York art scene became what it was today. This film shows Mekas’ transition into his new life in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and the adventures this holds.

MUBI's take

Jonas Mekas trades his Bolex for a digital camera, and the moniker “filmmaker” for “filmer” in this personal chronicle of his move from Soho, Manhattan—his stomping ground for three decades—to Brooklyn’s Greenpoint, the place he first lived upon immigrating to New York in 1947.
