Maya Deren in the Evening

[youtube=] A relaxing evening with experimental film. While studying film history in my undergraduate days, one of the works that most impressed me was the short film 'Meshes of the Afternoon' by Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid. Created in 1943, it explores a repetitive, fractured narrative filled with symbolic images that invite a psychoanalytic reading. I love returning to it every so often, and thinking each time how the music by Teiji Ito is the perfect complement.
