Following on from John’s recent steer toward Freud’s essay on the uncanny/unhomely, I’d like to suggest that anyone who hasn’t yet seen Maya Deren’s short film Meshes of the Afternoon do so immediately! It’s 13 mins long and comprises a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key… or perhaps not.
Those who have seen it, perhaps try watching it again with ideas of the homely and the unhomely, the strange and the uncanny, all sloshing around together with the below image from Maurice Tabard and Roger Parry.
