St Tula, Patron Saint of Cinema says:
Dream Twenty-Four Dreams per second.
Chapter s, verse 5
The first thing I did when I got to Adolfas Mekas and Pola Chapelle’s house was to make an offering to St. Tula, Patron Saint of Cinema. I placed a tarnished old British pence on the altar, then dinner began. Adolfas was my film adviser at Bard College; 25 years later, we find ourselves living just miles away from where it all began.
It was wonderful to spend Sunday with Adolfas and Pola (a dancer and chanteuse), their lovely son Sean, and friends. After a delicious meal, we toasted St. Tula with Adolfas’s homemade Lemoncello and Nocino. Hail St. Tula!
