This beautiful and mysterious book whose unedited pages contain a collection of letters that the famous brothers Jonas and Adolfas Mekas sent from America to Semeniškiai village, Biržai district, Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic. They were all addressed to the most important addressee of their lives – their mother, Elzbieta Mekienė.

“This collection of letters from Adolfas and Jonas Mekas shows the importance of writing as a way of memory-making. For many years Jonas Mekas would write in a diary before his diaries were replaced by constant filmic documentation of his life and surroundings. The intimate insight these letters provide are wonderful documents of their time as well as marks of the dying art of letter writing. As Jonas once told me: “The future will be determined by the present moment; this moment, this very second, will determine the next moment.” So let us make sure to remember this present moment as it was, in part, determined by the moments described by Adolfas and Jonas Mekas in their wonderful letters.” - Hans Ulrich Obrist

“Cette collection de lettres de Adolfas et Jonas Mekas prouve l’importance de l’écriture, comme un moyen de faire mémoire. Durant de nombreuses années, Jonas Mekas a rédigé ses journaux, avant que ceux-ci ne soient remplacés la captation constante sur la pellicule de sa vie et de son environnement. Ces lettres et le regard intime qu’elles offrent sont des documents inestimables sur leur époque autant qu’elles marquent la disparition de l’art épistolaire. Un jour, Jonas m’a dit : « le futur sera déterminé par ce moment présent et ce moment, à cette seconde précise, déterminera le suivant ». Faisons en sorte de se rappeler de ce moment présent tel qu’il était, en partie déterminé par les moments décrits par Adolfas et Jonas Mekas dans leur magnifique correspondance.” - Hans Ulrich Obrist
