Snow White

1983, 3:07 min, color, sound

In Snow White, the mirror is the reflexive focus of  Hámos' irreverent retelling of the Grimms' fairy tale. Here, the voice of the all-seeing mirror, which is visualized as a spectrum of colors, illuminates the evil queen so that she is always seen "in another light." Told with raw black humor,  Hámos' fractured fairy tale reflects an inventive play on the discourse of video and narcissism.

With: Cathy Haase. In German with English titles.
