MIRROR WORLD

by Abigail CHILD
2006 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 14' 00

With Gary Sullivan (part of FOREIGN FILM SERIES) By Desire. A reshaping of Mehboob Khan's classic Bollywood feature AAN into a comic and disturbing study of class and sexuality. Formal play and poetic subtitles deconstruct the narrative to locate the sub-version: the princess becomes the maid, the maid becomes queen. "Mirror World" wrenches narrative causality and discovers, with digital printing, ways to wreck havoc on our perceptions of the world. Hypnotic and beautiful: you cannot turn away.
