AT LAND

Maya Deren, 1944, 14 min

At Land is one of Maya Deren’s dreamlike films. The message which it transmits to and its main subject rests on the idea of the mutability of a personality. Maya said once that this film was made to show people the struggle to maintain the personal identity. The whole film has only 15 minutes, in which a whole life is subjectively described. It was made in the year of 1944, and Deren was the one who wrote, directed and played the featured role in it, just like in her first movie Meshes of the Afternoon. Maya Deren is laying on the sand, and the ocean’s waves are coming and going like if she had been spelled from it. This symbolic birth from the sea was particularly chosen to make us think of the role of education. She came from the sea, different from all the others who had influences and rules to follow since were born. Having the chance to find out by herself who she is and what she is doing there at that specific moment, like in a natural way maya would say, make her run. The film is all about her world exploration, her curiosity to discover what is in there, criticizing the society at that time which was not curious to know if there was any truth besides television or Hollywood. At the end, she chooses to go back to the sea after her incessant odyssey at land to find an identity.

AVIARY

Rudy Burckhardt, 1955, 5 min

Made in collaboration with Joseph Cornell. “Rudy Burckhardt photographed this impression of New York’s Union Square under Joseph Cornell’s direction. This location held a particular fascination for Cornell who wanted to establish a foundation for artists and art therapy there. In the film he treats the park as an outdoor aviary.” – P.Adams Sitney

GO GO GO

Marie Menken, 1964, 11.5 min

Taken from a moving vehicle, for much of the footage. The rest uses stationary frame, stop-motion. In the harbor sequence, I had to wait for the right amount of activity, to show effectively the boats darting about; some sequences took over an hour to shoot, and last perhaps a minute on the screen. The “strength and health” sequence was shot at a body beautiful convention. Various parts of the city of New York, the busy man’s engrossment in his busy-ness, make up the major part of the film … a tour-de-force on man’s activities.

BRIDGES-GO-ROUND

Shirley Clarke, 1958, 7.5 min

“By my standards, Miss Clarke’s picture, an eerie close-up of the metropolitan bridges, is extraordinary. A film that captures the bizarre magic of man-made spans with the movement of a lightning clap and with the same terrible beauty.” – Howard Thompson, The New York Times

“A new creative development … truly excellent.” – Mr. Hugh Gray, Dept. of Film, UCLA

PEYOTE QUEEN

Storm DeHirsch, 1965, 9 min

A further exploration into the color of ritual, the color of thought; a journey through the underworld of sensory derangement. “A very beautiful work! The abstractions drawn directly on film are like the paintings of Miro acute; moving at full speed to the rhythm of an African beat.” – D. Noguez, La Nouvelle Revue Francaise
