Meshes of the Afternoon

Maya Deren is, more or less, my idol, and this morning, I stumbled upon her 1943 unfinished surrealist film, made with Marcel Duchamp.  The name alone is captivating…”Witch’s Cradle”. If you aren’t familiar with her work, check out one of her well known experimental shorts, Meshes of the Afternoon. If it’s somehow possible to have a deprivation of creepy visuals the week before Halloween, it will definitely be satiated by these shorts.
