I added my own music to Maya Deren’s silent experimental film, “At Land” to create my own twist on the narrative. Some parts of the film (ending) were omitted to leave the viewer to decide the meaning for themselves.

At Land (1944) is a 15-minute silent experimental film written, directed by, and starring Maya Deren. It has a dream-like narrative in which a woman, played by Deren, is washed up on a beach and goes on a strange journey encountering other people and other versions of herself. Deren once said that the film is about the struggle to maintain one’s personal identity.
