A diary collage made by avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas. The footage was shot over a fifteen year period, beginning with his arrival in New York as a postwar Lithuanian refugee in 1949. It explores the immigrant section in Williamsburg, and goes on to show his involvement with the independent film community in the early 1960s. The film later shows life in Manhattan and upstate New York through Vietnam War protests, cinematheque screenings, and trips to the country. Coverage of the New York art-house scene includes footage of poets Frank O'Hara, Allen Ginsberg, and the Living Theatre.=
