"From the early 1940's until her death in 1961, Maya Deren evoked and exemplified the American avant-garde movement virtually by herself. Her first film, Meshes Of The Afternoon, set the tone for the decade and linked the movement to the older European avant-garde films of Cocteau and Bunuel." (The New York Times) "Intensely personal, symbolic and surreal films that reveal her deepest, darkest fantasies. She's Fellini and Bergman wrapped in one gloriously possessed body. Watching these films can change forever your concept of what cinema can be." (L.A. Weekly.) Contents: Meshes Of The Afternoon, At Land, A Study In Choreography For Camera, Ritual In Transfigured Time, Meditation On Violence, The Very Eye Of Night. DVD edition. B/W. 76 Minutes.
