Maya Deren

With a background of an interrest in psychology, dance and voodoo Maya Deren wrote surreal short films that would make a huge impact on today's wacky and brilliant film-makers such as David Lynch

Meshes in the Afternoon(1943) is a world seen through one awake/dream perspective, with enough symbolism to make adherents of Mulholland Dr.(2001) jump for joy.  


Ritual in transfigured time(1946)
