Film Screening: "The Films of Maya Deren"
Presented by Orit Halpern

Maya Deren, born Eleanora Derenkowskaia, was one of the most important American experimental filmmakers and entrepreneurial promoters of the avant-garde in the 1940s and 1950s. She combined her interests in dance, voodoo and subjective psychology in a series of surreal, perceptual, black and white short films. Deren was also a choreographer, dancer, film theorist, poet, lecturer, writer and photographer. The function of film, Maya believed, like most art forms, was to create an experience; each one of her films would evoke new conclusions, lending her focus to be dynamic and always-evolving.
