MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON & TWO OTHER MASTERPIECES BY WOMEN

Cuba, Iran, United States | 1943-77 | Maya Deren, Forugh Farrokhzad, Sara Gómez

MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON & TWO OTHER MASTERPIECES BY WOMEN film still

Voted the 16th best movie of all time in the 2022 Sight and Sound “greatest films” poll, Maya Deren’s surreal psychodrama Meshes of the Afternoon was co-directed by her husband, Alexander Hackenschmied (Hammid). A noirish nightmare about a woman haunted by a mysterious hooded figure with a mirror for a face, this 14-min. classic will be followed by two other masterworks by deceased distaff directors: Forugh Farrokhzad’s The House Is Black (Khaneh siah ast, Iran, 1963, 22 min.), a poetic portrait of life in a leper colony; and Sara Gómez’ 73-min. One Way or Another (De Cierta Manera, Cuba, 1977), a fiction-nonfiction hybrid that explores sexism, racism, and class in post-revolutionary Cuba through a love story between a schoolteacher and a factory worker. Subtitles. 16mm/DCP. Total 109 min.

Special admission $13; members, CIA/CSU I.D. holders, age 25 & under $10; no passes.
