In February 1946, Maya Deren rented a Cinema in Greenwich Village to show three of her films. This screening inspired Amos Vogel to establish his film club Cinema 16. This Amos Vogel Atlas juxtaposes Deren's avant-garde classics with films by Sabine Marte and Mara Mattuschka. They all examine female subversion in the way that the body, the psyche, movement, and the grotesque are constantly reexamined and transformed in front of the camera. (E.S.)
