Darum geht's

One of the most influential avant garde films of all time, Alexander Hammid and Maya Deren’s Meshes of the Afternoon stars Deren as a woman inside of a labyrinthine nightmare, inhabited by her double as well as a mysterious cloaked figure with the face of a mirror.

Darum sehenswert

Ein bahnbrechender Kurzfilm von der Patin der amerikanischen Avantgarde, Maya Deren. Kein anderer Film beschreibt das unlogische Mysterium der Träume so wie dieser – seine wunderbaren Bilder sind sicher eindrucksvoll genug, um einen Weg in deine eigene Traumlandschaft zu finden.

Meshes of the Afternoon Regie Maya Deren, Alexander Hammid

Kritiker-Rezensionen

It all but redefined cinema’s capacity for suggestive and imagistic storytelling through its radically intuitive editing strategies and inscrutably gothic imagery.
November 27, 2015
Images that tumble through space with a twisted geometry turn her home into a Suprematist nightmare; whimsical transformations through familiar yet still jolting special effects have a derisive, uncanny edge. Deren is one of the great screen presences; with her billowing hair and lugubrious gaze, she incarnates the eternal bohemian, rendering morbidity alluring and turning the air of idealistic purpose into a dance of seduction.
