Born in Russia, in what is now the Ukraine, Eleonora Derenkowska came to the United States in 1922. At first she became a leading activist in the local socialist movement. She believed in alternatives and experimentation her whole life, and would soon establish herself as an avant-garde poet, filmmaker, dancer as well as an ethnographer. Her movies are considered to be the cornerstone of American experimental cinema.
