HALLELUJAH THE HILLS (1963) Set of 2 photos


Set of two (2) vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white print still photos, USA. Peter Beard, Martin Greenbaum, Sheila Finn, dir: Adolfas Mekas.

Adolfas Mekas’ first film, a romantic comedy about a young woman who is being wooed by two young suitors. It was one of the earliest manifestations of the still very young movement of New American Cinema in the 1960s, and serves now as a kind of time capsule of the beatnik counterculture of the time. Although the film won many critical plaudits at the time, it received little actual theatrical play, so original paper from the U.S. release is exceedingly uncommon.
