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"
