HALLELUJAH THE HILLS

HALLELUJAH THE HILLS

An irreverent burst of anarchic energy that wowed attendees of the 1963 New York Film Festival, Hallelujah the Hills is a landmark film of the New American Cinema, presented here in a new 2K restoration. Directed with improvisatorial flair by Adolfas Mekas, a co-founder of FilmbrCulture magazine with his brother Jonas (Walden), Hallelujah the Hills follows two wildly impulsive young men who are in love with the same woman (played by two different actresses). A slapstick love letter to cinema, this fiercely independent wonder laid the groundwork for all the free-spirited filmmakers to follow.brbrSpecial Features: Booklet essay by film historian John Pruitt | Hallelujah the Villa (2006), an interview with Adolfas Mekas (27 minutes) | The First New York Film Festival (1963), a roundtable discussion with Adolfas Mekas, Joseph Losey, Richard Roud, and Amos Vogel
