Movie Info

In this surrealist film, Maya Deren's character rolls up on the beach, backwards. She crawls through a party unnoticed, but ultimately has social encounters with a number of people, and snatches a chess piece from a game in progress, running past at least three of her selves on her way down the beach. She is sucked back into the ocean from whence she came.

Audience Reviews for At Land

Waves in reverse look cool. Props as an fairly early "avant-garde" or "experimental" film. Playing with the tools is a good thing.

I can't say that I fully understand this film, which is Maya Deren's third film, but it's better than her second film and it's definitely interesting to watch because of the original and strange direction.

A female persona,a glorious artist,a transparent human libido,Deren possesses the viewer by clutching her soul,testing her limits,illuminating her behavior.The Land of Cherishing.
