Magic Mirror is the first part of a diptych of films re-enacting photographs by the Surrealist artist Claude Cahun (1894-1954) as tableaux vivants, and which are accompanied by spoken text from Cahun’s writing. Out of these intermedial interactions, media, authorship, and the question of when interpretation becomes a creative act, are made uncertain.
