Maya Deren

I first saw Meshes of The Afternoon in a RISD pre-college art history class. For some reason we spent the rest of the class watching INXS music videos.
Anyhow, Maya Deren made Meshes Of The Afternoon in 1943 at age 26 with her husband Alexander Hammid. Her third husband Teiji Ito did the soundtrack later on under Deren's direction.

This film titled At Land is also really beautiful

As is this A Study In Choreography For Camera
