Confessions to the Mirror is the second part of a diptych of films re-enacting photographs by the Surrealist artist Claude Cahun (1894-1954), as tableaux vivants accompanied by spoken text from Cahun’s writing. These re-enactments run alongside stagings from Cahun’s writing that narrate the anti-Nazi resistance activity the artist and her partner, Suzanne Malherbe, undertook on the Jersey Island, and their subsequent imprisonment.
