This year, The Horror Honeys decided to take a pledge, rather that make a resolution there was zero chance of us keeping. Women in Film has launched the 52 Films by Women project, in which you take a pledge to watch just ONE film directed by a woman every week this year. Easy enough right? And since this is The Horror Honeys, we are going to guide through the project, every week this year, with a featured horror film written or directed by a fierce female!
Take the pledge yourself here, and check out our next pick below!
Maya Deren is magic. She is light and beauty and terror, shown through a kaleidoscope with a child's view of the world outside. She was a visionary in experimental film long before women were even directing movies in a traditional form with any regularity. Her films tap into the inner most fears of women, and share her own beautiful and terrifying dreams. Maya Deren is our history, and we owe her a gratitude beyond imagining. Meshes of the Afternoon is only the beginning...
