Keelia Takes Manhattan -- This film documents a family walk through mid-town Manhattan charted around two of the city s most enduring architectural icons: the Chrysler Building and the Guggenheim Museum. As a home movie, it is inspired by the New York family films of Jonas Mekas. As a film about urban space, it embraces the celebratory tradition of the city symphony. As a film about architecture, it is a response to Matthew Barney s elegant but claustrophobically insular presentation of these two Manhattan landmarks in Cremaster 3. And as a sound film, its collage soundtrack explores the auditory representation of New York City through an approach to audiovisual synchronization governed by principles of gestural realism.

With IN THE MIRROR OF MAYA DEREN, documentary filmmaker Martina Kudlácek has fashioned not only a fascinating portrait of a groundbreaking and influential artist, but a pitch-perfect introduction to her strikingly beautiful and poetic body of work. Crowned "Fellini and Bergman wrapped in one gloriously possessed body," Maya Deren is arguably the most important and innovative avant-garde filmmaker in the history of American cinema. Using locations from the Hollywood hills to Haiti, Deren made such mesmerizing films as “At Land,” “Ritual In Transfigured Time” and her masterpiece “Meshes of the Afternoon.”
