    Documentary about the life of avant-garde filmmaker Maya Deren, who led the independent film movement of the 1940s. Using footage from filmmaker Maya Deren's avant-garde films of the 1940s, archival audio interviews and observances from contemporaries such as Stan Brakhage, Amos Vogel, and Jonas Mekas, the documentary provides a glimpse into the mind and life of this groundbreaking and influential artist. She will long be remembered for working completely outside of the commercial film industry, where she made her own inner experience to be the center of her cinema. This compelling documentary should now be considered as essential viewing for all fans of avant-garde film.
