Le livre de WALDEN
by Christian Lebrat & Pip Chodorov

By following each cut in the film, this book is a systematic exploration of the shots, sequences, situations and characters included in the film Walden (1969) by Jonas Mekas.
Includes a preface with two texts, one from David E. James and and a second by Jean-Jacques Lebel, as well as a bibliography and index.

This book accompanied the first European release of Walden on VHS published by Re:Voir Video, now available apart from the original boxset, which is now out of print.
Press :
In collaboration with Re:Voir, Paris Expérimental published, in 1997, The Walden Book to accompany the release of a boxset of the homonymous film by Jonas Mekas. It is an annotation of each cut in the film, interspersed with a selection of the best texts by theorists, filmmakers and poets, mostly American or French, devoted to one of the most beautiful films in the world.
A literally infinite book: to pick up at the point where the beginning reaches its end ...
