Maya Deren est une réalisatrice américaine d'origine ukrainienne, née Eleanora Derenkovskaïa à Kiev le 29 avril 1917 et décédée à New York le 13 octobre 1961.

Personnalité majeure du cinéma expérimental américain des années 1940, Maya Deren réalise de nombreux courts métrages d'inspiration surréaliste et psychanalytique, inspirés par Jean Cocteau. Elle tente en vain de participer à la fédération de l'avant-garde américaine au début des années 50. C'est en son honneur qu'en 1962, un an après sa mort, Jonas Mekas réalise son rêve en fondant, avec d'autres cinéastes, The Film-Makers' Cooperative.

Ce documentaire retrace la biographie surprenante de l'artiste légendaire Maya Deren. Née à Kiev en 1917, elle devint un personnage central de l'avant-garde américaine après la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. Surtout connue pour son travail anticonformiste dans le film expérimental, elle était très active dans d'autres domaines politiques et culturels : elle fut poète, danseuse, et par-dessus tout une ethnographe renommée et une adepte des pratiques vaudou.

At the beginning of the film, a woman is lying on a beach as if she has been washed up by the ocean. She climbs a tree with some difficulty, but when she finally reaches the top, she finds herself at the end of a long dining room table during a bourgeois dinner party. All the guests ignore her as she drags herself on top of the table and pulls herself across it, trying to reach a man (played by graphic designer Alvin Lustig) at the opposite end who looks deeply concentrated on a chess game. When she finally gets to the man, he stands up and leaves the table; she looks disappointed and hopeless.

A woman sees someone on the street as she is walking back to her home. She goes to her room and sleeps on a chair. As soon as she is asleep, she experiences a dream in which she repeatedly tries to chase a mysterious hooded figure with a mirror for a face but is unable to catch it. With each failure, she re-enters her house and sees numerous household objects including a key, a knife, a flower, a telephone and a phonograph. The woman follows the hooded figure to her bedroom where she sees the figure hide the knife under a pillow. Throughout the story, she sees multiple instances of herself, all bits of her dream that she has already experienced. The woman tries to kill her sleeping body with a knife but is awakened by a man. The man leads her to the bedroom and she realizes that everything she saw in the dream was actually happening. She notices that the man's posture is similar to that of the hooded figure when it hid the knife under the pillow. She attempts to injure him and fails. Towards the end, the man walks into the house and sees a broken mirror being dropped onto wet ground. He then sees the woman in the chair, who was previously sleeping, but is now dead.
