Maya Deren at 100

I am not greedy. I do not seek to possess the major portion of your days. I am content if, on those rare occasions whose truth can be stated only by poetry, you will, perhaps, recall an image, even only the aura of my films.

Follow the links below to find out what happened in between (with apologies for the inevitable dead video links).
