This documentary is the compilation of years of research and hours of footage shot by anthropologist and filmmaker Maya Deren. My only caveat is that this version was not edited by Deren, she remarked that the material was too complex to try and reduce, so it was put together for her posthumously. The result is a tad sensationalist, many will recognize the footage which found it's way into many documentaries created afterwards.
