Screening Maya Deren’s best known film Meshes of the Afternoon
and Barbara Hammer’s documentary tribute Maya Deren’s Sink

Friday October 19th at 7:30pm FREE

Q&A with film maker, Barbara Hammer

Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) is one of the most influential works in American experimental cinema. Made by Deren with her husband, cinematographer Alexander Hammid, Meshes of the Afternoon established the independent avant garde movement in film in the United States.

Maya Deren’s Sink (2011) is a tribute to the mother of avant garde American film, as recounted by those who knew her: Teiji Ito’s family, Carolee Schneemann and Judith Malvina.  Clips from Deren’s films are projected back into the spaces where they were originally filmed, appearing on the floorboards, furniture and in the bowl of her former sink.  As “the walls speak” Deren lives again in this evocative documentary film.

Since last appearing at WAAM the dynamic duo of Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine have traveled far and wide with performances that included a Navajo Bar Mitzvah, A Scottish-Szechuan restaurant specializing in sweet and sour haggis, a burial at sea, and a demonstration at the Library of Congress. Joining them will be Bassist Charlie Kniceley in an exciting program featuring material not previously performed in Woodstock this year, exploring social surrealism, abstract-depressionism, and post-concussionism.
