Maya Deren

Just exploring what's available instantly on Netflix and ended up watching a compilation of short experimental films by Maya Deren. I had not heard of her, or don't remember if I had, up until just now. I was also reading up on her biography. Half way through I was thinking, "Man I wish I had the energy to accomplish so much." Then I got to the end of her biography, that part which mentioned she died of severe malnutrition from a 20 year addiction to amphetamines. So, I guess I don't wish to have her energy.
