Douglas GordonI had nowhere to go: Portrait of a displaced person

Featuring an extensive interview with Douglas Gordon on the process of making his 2016 film I had nowhere to go: Portrait of a displaced person, this video, produced by Berlin Art Link, includes clips of Jonas Mekas and revealing anecdotes about the creation of the film.

Douglas Gordon’s 2016 film, I had nowhere to go: Portrait of a displaced person has been hailed by critics and viewers alike for its revelatory treatment of history and innovative approach to the biographical genre. As the subject of the film, Jonas Mekas, states, “Long before I met Douglas I met his films and they were exciting. I like them because they are so different from what I or anyone else is doing. His films open a totally new invisible window full of visual excitement.”

Berlin Art Link Productions has created an interview video (above) with Douglas Gordon on the process of making the film and how his artistic relationship with Jonas Mekas has continued to inspire him.
