Adolfas Mekas

Another melancholy post to make, this time to recognize the passing of Adolfas Mekas, brother of Jonas, whose passion for cinema easily equaled that of his more (publicly) prominent brother.  It was Adolfas who co-founded Film Culture magazine back in 1954 with Jonas, a magazine that continues to be an endless source of fascination and insight for me even many long years after its cancellation (as evidenced by the many scanned pages to be found here on this blog).  Best wishes to his many friends and family...
