GERMANY | 100 minutes | 2016

Douglas Gordon concocts a sensory cinematic experience based on the diary of Jonas Mekas. Who was Jonas Mekas? Beyond his biography, how best to understand his art, philosophy and approach to life? After the excellent Zidane: A Portrait of the 21st Century, Scottish filmmaker Douglas Gordon traces the exile of the Lithuanian-born, American avantgarde pioneer, who arrived in Brooklyn in 1949 after fleeing the Nazis. Based on the diary of the 93-yearold Mekas, I Had Nowhere To Go is a sensory experience that’s also a celebration of artistic creation, the perennial refuge from a crazy world.
