Maya Deren's A Study in Choreography for Camera (1945) is an acknowledged classic of the avant-garde dance/trance film. More than 20 years after Maya Deren died in 1961, Anthology Film Archives in New York began to distribute the 15 minutes of outtakes that survive of the four-minute film, in order to demonstrate not only "how she did it" but to provide an object lesson in economy of editing.
