3 by Maya Deren

Dir. Maya Deren

Ritual in Transfigured Time
1946, 15min, 16mm

At Land
1944, 15min, 16mm

Meshes of the Afternoon
1943, 14min, 16mm


Maya Deren, the godmother of the American avant-garde, created trance-state explorations of consciousness, movement, the body, and nature rooted in the dream logic of surrealism and awash in unforgettably uncanny images. From the time-and space-collapsing psychodrama of her forever influential debut Meshes of the Afternoon to the mesmerizing dance film Ritual in Transfigured Time, these profoundly personal landmarks of experimental film showed that cinema could be a direct conduit to the unconscious mind.

Mulholland Drive

Dir. David Lynch
With Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, Justin Theroux
2001, 147min, DCP


Naomi Watts’ eager aspiring actress arrives in LA with stars in her eyes, but soon finds herself sucked into the nightmarish underbelly of the Hollyweird Dream Factory as she becomes entangled with an amnesiac femme fatale. Hitchcockian doubles, illusory identities, and surreal slips into the dark and disturbing abound in David Lynch’s neo-noir freak-out.

Without Maya Deren, the filmmaker widely recognized as the mother of American avant-garde cinema, there is no David Lynch.
