Essential Deren: Collected Writings on Film

Author/Editor: Maya Deren


Until now, Maya Deren’s essays on the art and craft of filmmaking have not been available in a comprehensive volume equally handy for students, film enthusiasts and scholars. Essential Deren contains all of the filmmaker’s essays on her own films as well as more general essays on film theory, the relation of film to dance, various technical aspects of film production, the distinction between amateur and professional filmmaking and the famous 1946 chapbook An Anagram of Ideas on Art, Form and Film, which has been reset here for the first time. There are hard-to-find articles written for magazines and art journals, as well as lectures, Q&A sessions, program notes and manifestoes.
