Maya Deren Anniversary Programme

Maya Deren (29 April 1917 - 13 Oct 1961) was one of the most influential filmmakers of the avant-garde of 1940s and 1950s America. In her experimental work she abandoned conventions of physical time and space, turning her vision into a stream of consciousness in which she combined her interests in dance, Haitian Vodouand psychology. We present four of her most arresting works Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), At Land (1944), Ritual in Transfigured Time (1946) and The Very Eye of Night (1958).
