Subject 3: Meshes of the Afternoon (1943)

‘Meshes of the Afternoon’ is a short experimental film by the artist Maya Deren. The film, shot in black and white, uses a dream-like narrative that is personal to the artist, however it is able to be viewed and interpreted by the viewer. The use of shadows to create and abstract view of the self is a large feature of the work, something that I have been looking at within my own video.
