An Intimate Night of Sound and Film
An influential figure of avant-garde independent experimental cinema, Maya Deren (1917, Kiev, Ukraine - 1961, New York, US) explored identities, desires, and movements through a radical spatialization of the filmic language. Forming linear motions through non-linear spaces, Deren orchestrated with her evocative splices of celluloid to articulate the polarity of sameness and difference.
"...Never sacrificed visual drama and beauty to a stream of words...to the relentless activity and explanations of a plot..."
The dream-like states. Shadows, mirrors, self/other. The spectral lens of Maya Deren will be (re)visited through the prism of sonic responses.
