Maya Deren: Meshes of the Afternoon

Here is a video of one of my favorite artists/filmmakers, Maya Deren's Meshes of the afternoon.  In this film Maya Deren uses a circular plot narrative, creating a broken record effect.  This technique defies the typical linear narrative that has a beginning a middle and an end.  She also utilizes dance in her film production.  No speech.  Only movement.  I think everyone should see her works and read her Anagram.  So here it is.  "Meshes of the Afternoon"
