Is there an all time favorite genre of… anything??
Well… probably all time favorite genre of anything (laughs) - late 60s New York dance, poetry, film… that whole era of NYC. All those stories are kept alive because all those artists are still with us. Jonas Mekas is like 92, and still totally actively producing work. The city institutions keep generously offering re-workings of those things to inspire.
It was an interesting era because it was affordable to live here and the way they were artists and their commitment level they were able to have because they weren’t totally stressed about their space to live and eat and sleep here.
