In the Mirror of Maya Deren

Co-Presented with the Red Vic Movie House
Runs Friday, May 16 through Tuesday, May 20

Martina Kudlacek’s In the Mirror of Maya Deren is both a both a fascinating portrait of a groundbreaking and influential artist and a pitch-perfect introduction to her strikingly beautiful and poetic body of work. Maya Deren made such mesmerizing films as At Land, A Ritual in Transfigured Time and her masterpiece Meshes of the Afternoon. Starting with excerpts from these films, In the Mirror effectively interweaves archival footage with observances from her contemporaries such as Stan Brakhage and Jonas Mekas, dance pioneer Katherine Dunham and Living Theater founder Judith Malina. This illuminating documentary features an original score by experimental composer John Zorn. (Red Vic)
