Williamsburg is a 'diary-film' by avant-garde legend Jonas Mekas, which documents his neighbourhood and its people from 1948 to 1951, and includes some footage from the 1970s. This film contains some of the first footage Mekas shot with the camera he bought on arrival in the US. There's no grand dramatic narrative here, only the fleeting poetry of ordinary people caught in little everyday moments.
