One Night Only: April 27. Ukrainian-born filmmaker Maya Deren is often cited as one of the most influential voices in experimental cinema. In the Mirror of Maya Deren offers an accessible portrait of its subject and “not only celebrates Deren’s cinematic legacy but also reveals a gifted talent whose explosive temperament was at odds with the lyrical, dreamlike imagery she put on screen” –San Francisco Chronicle. Deren’s masterful short film “Meshes of the Afternoon,” accompanying the documentary, portrays a woman who falls asleep and enters a convoluted perception of reality, with her internal conflict portrayed in a way that could only be shown through the medium of film.
