This Week’s TOP 5 Events – 10/14/13


(Ordered by date)

Maya Deren’s Unfinished Work

When: Thursday October 17, 5:30pm – 7pm

Where: Donnelley Film Theatre in the Heimbold Visual Arts Center

This event is a definite must for any film students and/or film history enthusiasts! Check out the description:

‘Maya Deren, often hailed as the mother of American avant-garde film, made just over an hour’s worth of completed films during a career of two decades. However, she left behind a wealth of unfinished projects that illuminate her agenda as a filmmaker and working artist in the 1940s and 1950s. In fact, these fragments and abandoned or re-purposed works necessitate a reappraisal both of her own oeuvre and of the value of incompletion for producing critical and creative work.

Sarah Keller, Assistant Professor of English and Cinema Studies at Colby College in Maine, is the co-editor of the collection Jean Epstein: Critical Essays and New Translations (Amsterdam University Press, 2012), and her current book project, Incomplete Control: Maya Deren’s Unfinished Business, is forthcoming from Columbia University Press. The lecture is free and open to the public, and will include a screening of Ritual in Transfigured Time (Maya Deren, 1945, 15 min.). The lecture is made possible by the generous support of the Spencer Barnett Memorial Fund.’
