For me, Maya Deren is the quintessential multifarious talent: she was an innovative filmmaker, film theorist, choreographer, dancer, poet, writer and photographer; she was also quite the exotic beauty. Therefore, I`m pleased to say that I`m an ardent fan of this brilliant and highly influential woman.
