In a 2019 interview, asked by Hans Ulrich Obrist about projects he did not complete, Jonas Mekas answered: When I am 100, I want to go to the Himalayas, to Tibet. We’ll talk about it in 2023, when I’m back. He passed away in 2019.

In his films, Mekas often uses boards with writings, plenty of these boards are of pale pink colour. It is where the colour of flags comes from.
