Magic Mirror combines a restaging of the French Surrealist artist Claude Cahun’s black and white photographs with selected extracts from her book Aveux non avenus (1930, Confessions Denied). Three women masquerade as Cahun’s characters; the split identity appears as a double that persists throughout the film. (Sarah Pucill, 2013, 16mm to digital, 75 minutes)
