Maya Deren (April 29, 1917 – October 13, 1961), born Eleanora Derenkowskaia (Russian: Элеоно́ра Деренко́вская), was one of the most important American experimental filmmakers and entrepreneurial promoters of the avant-garde in the 1940s and 1950s. Deren was also a choreographer, dancer, film theorist, poet, lecturer, writer and photographer. Perhaps one of the most influential experimental films in American cinema was her collaboration with Alexander Hammid on Meshes of the Afternoon (1943). She continued to make several more films of her own, including At Land (1944), A Study in Choreography for Camera (1945), and Ritual in Transfigured Time (1946) – writing, producing, directing, editing, and photographing them with help from only one other person, Hella Heyman, as camerawoman.

I wish more filmmakers today had the courage to create with the mind of a poet. I agree with Miller about film being a poetic medium not properly exploited. Using film only to tell a story efficiently is like using an organ or symphonic orchestra only to play monophonic tunes one can whistle; it can be a nice, memorable tune, but our brain expects more from an orchestra and so it should expect more from a film screen.
