I work for Microcinema International. We curate, exhibit and distribute the moving image arts. Jonas Mekas is an artist from one of our labels. I recently created a Facebook Film Page for "Walden-Diaries, Notes and Sketches" by Jonas Mekas. Since you are a fan of Jonas Mekas, you will appreciate this experimental film. I have posted video clips from the film, photos, links and events, and I would appreciate it if you help me get the page "HAPPENING!"
