Time: 18:30 pm Thursday December 17th 2009
Location: Screening room at Hanoi Goethe Institute – 56/58 Nguyen Thai Hoc St – Hanoi.
After Man with a Movie Camera (Soviet Union, 1929) and a series of Western European avant garde films of the 1920s and 30s (Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Hans Richter, Viking Eggeling, Fernand Ledger), DOCLAB is introducing Maya Deren (1917-1961), an important American avant-garde filmmaker and film theorist of the 1940s and 1950s.
Deren – also a choreographer, dancer, poet, writer and photographer – was a key figure in the creation of a New American Cinema, highlighting personal, experimental, underground film. Her first film Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) – among films to be screened – is considered to be one of the first important American experimental films. It provided a model for self-financed 16mm production and distribution, as well as established an aesthetic model of what experimental cinema could do.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
