Abstract

Unlike many of the manifestos in this book, Maya Deren’s was written after the fact, as an overall statement on her work. A pioneering avant-garde filmmaker, her first film, Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), was also highly influential for avant-garde feminist film theorists and filmmakers in the 1970s. In “A Statement of Principles” Deren offers a complex, universal tapestry of the psyche and argues that her films capture and reflect these internal contradictions.
