Noted experimental filmmaker Maya Deren ("Meshes of the
Afternoon") directs her last
completed short. Dancers are shown in photographic negatives
as they perform some ballet moves against the background of the night's
starry sky. The music is
conducted by the Metropolitan Opera's Anthony Tudor and consists of a
ensemble of woodwind and percussion. It's all very arty and enjoyable.
