In the Mirror of Maya Deren
Born in Kiev and raised in the United States, Maya Deren was the first filmmaker to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship. She is among the artists featured in LACMA’s exhibition In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States. She worked primarily in 16mm film from 1943 until 1959 before her death at the age of forty-four. The recent, critically acclaimed documentary In the Mirror of Maya Deren features interviews with Deren’s fellow experimental filmmakers, outtakes from her work, and recordings of the artist discussing her life and practice.
