Part essay, part film poem, "Magic mirror" re-stages the french artist, Claude Cahun´s surrealist black and white photographs and text into a series of vivantes tableaux. Beginning as an examination between Cahun´s photographs and writing, the film questions realtionships between self-other, word-image, photography and film, puzzling a complex synaesthesia that curves and oversteps borders of sound, image and word.
"Magic mirror" slowly evolves with a terrifying precision and tension, the splitting of identity appears as a double which persists throughout; superimposition, shadow, imprints in sand, reflections in water, mirror and distorting glass. Three characters swap identities between gender, age and the inanimate. Voices separate: different voices, which at times overlap, and at times are in conversation; translate extracts from Cahun´s book "Aveux non avenus" ("Confessions denied").
From act to act, each self-contained drama proceeds like a series of Noth theatre pieces, the total effect is less that of a present action than of a simile or metaphor made visual, the full comprehension of which stays just out of reach. The images and words remain echoing, reflecting and refracting in the mind long after the film has finished.
