The Vanity Tables of Douglas Sirk

Ελληνική Πρεμιέρα / Greek Premiere
ΗΠΑ / USA, 2015, 10′, DCP, Έγχρ., Ασπρόμαυρο / Color, Black & White Με ήχο / Sound

A video essay exploring the frequency and meaning of that particular prop in a wide variety of Sirk movies. Is it a device that traps and keeps women in an artificial world with a limited point of view? Or is it a gateway to the past and the future, and a distorted but nevertheless real vision of the roles that woman are forced to play in society?

Director present
